Quiz night raises over £1,597 for The People’s Kitchen
A quiz night was held to help boost the fundraising total for the 2022 Sintons’ Trainee Challenge, an annual event which sees the firm’s aspiring lawyers take on an ambitious feat for charity.
The Trainee Challenge Quiz Night was attended by scores of professionals from across the North East, and raised over £1,597 for The People’s Kitchen, Sintons’ newly-nominated staff charity.
The event, held at Shearer’s Bar in Newcastle, is a much-anticipated annual event in support of the firm’s Trainee Challenge, which this year will see the 11-strong group taking on the Paddle the Bann.
The canoeing expedition follows an ambitious 58km route from Lough Neagh in Ireland to Coleraine on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean.
Sintons’ Trainee Challenge is now a renowned event in the firm’s calendar, with previous escapades including the 136-mile Coast to Coast cycling route from Whitehaven to Tynemouth; the Three Peak challenge of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Mount Snowdon, and the 140-mile Port2Port cycle from Newcastle to Amsterdam.
Collectively, over the years, the challenges have raised thousands of pounds for local charities to support their work in the North East community.
“Our Trainee Challenge is not only a fantastic challenge for our young lawyers and an excellent means of team-building, but also a very important fundraising initiative,” says Christopher Welch, managing partner of Sintons.
“Through their efforts, we are able to add significantly to the total we are able to donate to our nominated charity, which we have recently named as being The People’s Kitchen for the next two years.
“The Trainee Challenge Quiz Night is a keenly-anticipated occasion and this year was as enjoyable as ever, with a brilliant turnout in team numbers and an excellent total raised. We are very grateful for the support, as ever, and wish our trainees the best of luck with their training as Paddle the Bann draws nearer.”
