On 19th October 2016  quiz teams from organisations across Essex met for the hotly contested Havens Hospice Big Essex Corporate Quiz. Thanks to some fantastic generosity over  £8,000 was raised for Little Havens on the night.

Birkett Long entered a team of eight and we got off to a solid start. In the first few rounds we were tested on our knowledge in a range of subjects including sport, geography and the movies and we made it through with only a few points lost. By half time we were placed in second, just one point behind the leaders, accountancy firm Edmund Carr. It all came down to the second half; a round of famous faces and the ‘intros’ round. After some inspired answers we finished the quiz feeling cautiously optimistic. After a tense wait for the scores to be counted Birkett Long were announced as champions with 78 points with Edmund Carr in a very close second on 77 points. The Birkett Long Team were awarded with a shield in celebration of their victory.

As well as the quiz the night included a raffle, prize draw and an auction and thanks to some fantastic generosity the total raised for Little Havens was over £8,000. 

We would like to thank the brilliant team at Little Havens for organising a fantastic event.
