The Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trusts 'Beast Of A Quiz' was a huge success!

The March event marked the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust's 'Beast Of A Quiz', and what a brilliant night it was. The event itself was sold out, and the ballroom at Berties was buzzing! From the event, the charity raised an astounding £4080.31 towards its continued fight against cancer!

Guests took on ITV’s The Chaser Mark 'The Beast' Labbett in a quiz event (which he of course won) and then the winning team faced The Beast in a nail-biting head to head round, with Mark only winning by one point! The raffle was also a big hit with the quizzers, with the main prizes being an iPad mini and a beauty gift hamper worth over £500 which was generously donated by Harveys of Halifax. There was also a delicious looking sweet hamper, kindly donated by Haribo, amongst a variety of other prizes.

The big event was kindly supported by Sheena Doherty, a Principal Partner with Sovereign Wealth who said, "it was a pleasure to sponsor such an amazing event. The atmosphere and genuine enjoyment from everyone on the evening was splendid. I am thrilled that my support has helped raise such a tremendous amount that will clearly help this important Charity.”

Julie Smith, an attendee of the quiz said, "the event was so well organised and promoted (big congratulations to the LCYCT event organisers), lovely raffle prizes and Mark "The Beast" Labbett was happy to sign books, photographs and have photos taken with everyone – what a gentleman".

Thanks go out to everyone who attended the event, the University of Huddersfield students who helped create, organise and film the occasion, and a special thanks to Mark Labbett, David Bill, Sheena Doherty and Paul Simpson for all their help in making it a night to remember.
