Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall Solicitors (WHN) has boosted funds for The Met, a Bury-based arts and entertainment charity, raising around £2,300 in a closely fought charity quiz night.

The annual charity event, held at Stables Country Club in Bury, was attended by more than 70 of WHN’s partners, clients and staff who formed 14 quiz teams playing a challenging seven rounds of questions across a variety of topics.

It was hosted by quizmaster, WHN director Sara Beaumont, who is based at the firm’s Bury office. The funds raised through entry fees and raffle tickets will be donated to The Met, an award-winning arts centre which provides an outlet for local artists and musicians to perform in the area. It is run by Bury Metropolitan Arts Association and supported by Bury Council, Arts Council England and Greater Manchester Combined Authority.

The charity’s guest team also managed to scoop the winner’s trophy in a tightly fought contest, beating Manchester-based barristers and legal services providers Kings Chambers (last year’s champions) by just one point, with financial planning and business advisers PM+M coming in third place.

Michael Shroot, CEO, WHN Solicitors, said: “Our annual quiz night is about bringing together our clients and partners not only for an enjoyable evening, but also to help make a positive impact in our local community.

“Our firm’s history in the Bury area stretches back more than 230 years and we felt it right to support an award-winning charity which plays such an important role in the local community by providing entertainment and supporting local creative talent.

“With such a close finish between the top three places this year, we look forward to planning for next year’s event and supporting further charities in our local community.”

The Met is noted nationally for its specialist folk music programme. Having undergone a multi-million-pound refurbishment completed in 2016, it incorporates two modernised performance spaces, a creative space for local artists, and the Edwin Street Creative Hub which includes a recording studio and creative businesses.

Victoria Robinson, CEO, The Met added: “We have a long relationship with WHN which we hope will continue well into the future. The money raised from its charity quiz night will go towards providing artists the opportunity to develop their craft, to keeping workshop and ticket fees low, helping us to support our community and giving everyone access to our programme whatever they can afford.

“The Met helps to create a healthy and happy community in Bury and these funds will help make sure that continues to happen. Many thanks to everyone who took part in the quiz night and to WHN for continuing to support our work.”
