Article date:  24/10/2011

There were no Weakest Links at the recent Higgs & Sons quiz night, as the legal firm brought together employees, clients, professional contacts and even footballer Steve Bull, to raise near on £4,000 for charity.

Working through 10 rounds of pub quiz questions, 46 teams were brought together in Brierley Hill to raise the money for the Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer (LFBC) charity.

On the night, the team from local chartered accountants, Griffiths and Pegg, proved worthy winners for a second year running, retaining their 2010 title.

LFBC is a Midlands-based charity that raises funds to provide equipment to aid diagnosis. Run by a group of volunteers, numerous fundraising events are held throughout the year, raising awareness of the condition that affects one in eight women in the UK.

The charity's co-founder and chairwoman, Veronica Kumeta, said: "It was great to see how many local organisations had gathered together for the charity. For a cause that touches so many people, it's a huge boost towards funding for the much needed equipment at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. It was a great evening!"
