Carey Olsen Guernsey’s annual charity quiz has raised £4,500 to be shared between the firm’s two chosen local charities – the Guernsey Cardiac Action Group and the Guernsey Child Contact Centre.
The event, which was held at St Pierre Park Hotel with the help of Centre Stage and expertly hosted by quiz question masters Nick Carver and Ryan Williams, attracted 27 entries from Guernsey businesses and challenged teams with a series of interactive rounds, testing not only their brains but also their senses with questions related to listening, touch, voice recognition, memory and speed.
Federal Trust Company were crowned the 2018 winners and will now have their name engraved on the quiz’s perpetual trophy and we hope they will return in 2019 to try to retain the trophy. Second place went to Carey Olsen with Artemis Trustees taking third place.
The quiz takes place annually in Guernsey as part of Carey Olsen’s ongoing support of local charitable causes.
Senior associate Adrian Sarchet, chairman of Carey Olsen’s Guernsey charities committee, said: “The Carey Olsen charity quiz has become a must-attend event in the social calendar of many Guernsey businesses in recent years and we are extremely grateful to all the firms who support the evening by entering teams. It is a really fun event to organise and everybody who takes part has a great time, but the most important thing is that we’ve once again been able to raise money for two fantastic local charities.”
