Charities benefit from law firm quiz


BLANDY & Blandy LLP has raised an impressive £5,000 in one evening for its charities Daisy’s Dream and Reading Samaritans, at the firm’s annual quiz night held earlier this month.

More than 30 of Blandy & Blandy’s partners and staff and many of the Thames Valley’s leading profession­al services supported the event, including Barton Willmore, BDO, Beaufort, Boyer Planning, Crowe Clark Whitehill, Grant Thornton, Harrisons, Haslams, Hicks Baker, James Cowper Kreston, Kempton Carr Croft, KRE, Lichfields, Moore Stephens, Pegasus, Savills, Turley, Vail Williams, Vale & West and Wilkins Kennedy; alongside banks Clydesdale, Handelsban­ken and Lloyds.

Raffle prizes were kindly donated by local businesses including Windsor Racecourse,

Valpy Street Bar & Bistro, Vue, Chiltern Valley Winery and Brewery, Revolución De Cuba, Oliver Bonas, Beale Park and Honest Burgers.

The winning team, Crowe Clark Whitehill, each received a trophy and a bottle of English sparkling wine grown on the Queen’s estate.

And the March 8 event was a real moneyspinn­er. Claire Rhodes, fundraisin­g manager at Daisy’s Dream said: “A massive thank you to Blandy & Blandy for organising such a brilliant quiz night. We are absolutely thrilled with the fabulous response and incredibly generous support.”

The branch director at Reading Samaritans added: “Thank you for a great evening and great company - a very impressive total raised.”

Nearly 100 charities have recently contacted Blandy & Blandy to apply for the firm’s support when the current charities’ two year cycle ends in June.
