A quiz night hosted by Collas Crill has raised over £5,000 for Ernie’s Angels - the firm's charity of choice for 2018 - which provides financial support towards palliative care and funeral expenses of terminally ill children in the Bailiwick.
The event was attended by 250 people with group Collas Crill Partners Paul Wilkes and Wayne Atkinson acting as quiz masters for the night. The 38 teams were challenged through a series of rounds, ranging from sport and nature to science and general knowledge.
Team Richmond took home the winner’s trophy, with Ernie’s Angels awarded the wooden spoon.
The fundraising total was boosted by table sales, cash donations and a raffle, comprising prizes generously donated by local sponsors.
Clare Backlund-Leale, Founder of Ernie’s Angles, said: "Ernie’s Angels so appreciates all the fundraising that Collas Crill has done for us. We were thrilled to be chosen as their charity of choice this year and have benefited greatly from the funds that have been raised.
"Their events have helped to raise our profile within the community and the support and friendship that we have received from the management and staff has been phenomenal. We are nearing the end of our first year in operation and we feel that we owe a great deal of our success to the support of the team at Collas Crill.”

The evening was organised by Collas Crill’s in-house charity team, MAD, which offers employees the chance to create, organise, assist with and participate in annual charitable activities that benefit the local community.
Vicki Malledent, from MAD Committee, said: “Thanks to everyone who joined us for the Collas Crill Charity Quiz and for digging deep to raise such a fantastic sum for this inspiring local charity.
“A big thank you also goes out to those who donated raffle prizes, we were overwhelmed by the generosity. We've had fantastic feedback about the event, and hope to turn this into an annual tradition.”
