Quiz held to support Trainee Challenge fundraising
The Trainee Challenge Quiz Night is being held to help support fundraising for this year’s Trainee Challenge, which has seen the 11-strong group successfully complete the Three Peaks Challenge.
Their fundraising goes to The People’s Kitchen, which supports homeless and vulnerable people in Newcastle with food and friendship, and is Sintons’ staff charity for two years.
The quiz night is a popular annual event in Sintons’ calendar, which attracts attendees from across the region. It is being held this year on July 6 in Shearer’s Bar at St James’ Park.
Sintons’ trainee group has already raised a significant total from its completion of the Three Peaks Challenge earlier this month, which saw them scale the peaks of Pen-y-Ghent (694 metres), Whernside (736 metres) and Ingleborough (723 metres) within 12 hours.
Over the years, the annual Trainee Challenges have raised thousands of pounds for regional good causes.
David Pritchard, head of marketing at Sintons and chair of the firm’s CSR committee, says: “Every year, our trainees dedicate themselves to training for and completing a gruelling physical challenge, in addition to their legal work and studies, to help raise funds for charity. This year, they have again excelled themselves with the completion of the Three Peaks Challenge.
“Through this ever-popular quiz night, we can help support them further in their fundraising, while also offering attendees an enjoyable social opportunity. To date, they have already raised a fantastic sum for The People’s Kitchen – at a time when their resources have never been more in demand, and fundraising has never been more necessary – and we’re very grateful to those who will join us on the night in helping to add even more to that total.”
The event, hosted by David Pritchard and Peter Jennings, will be held on July 6 from 6pm to 10pm in Shearer’s Bar, Strawberry Place, Newcastle. There will also be a raffle and game of heads and tails.
A table of six costs £60 or an individual place is £10. To attend, contact Peter Jennings on or sign up
