Yorkshire C&I Group Xmas Quiz results
Last night saw Toast Bar & Bistro play host to the inaugural Yorkshire C&I Group Xmas Quiz, sponsored by Florit Brooke at which Yorkshire’s in-house legal community pitted their wits against each other and a good number of practice lawyers.
Mama’s & Papas General Counsel and ‘Quizmaster’ Jason Curtis entertained the crowd to 5 rounds of questions on general knowledge, film/TV, sport, music and travel, on top of his ‘Celebrity Santa’ picture round and the ‘Jingle Jumble’ Christmas movie anagram section. Each team elected to play their single ‘joker’ on their specialised subject to double their points, and this strategy produced some considerable jostling for pole position throughout the evening, with Pace at one point getting their maximum points doubled on the Film & TV round.
The outright winners were HSBC whose legal team went out there looking more like they had been in training for University Challenge! Complete with furry mascot and some nifty Christmas jumpers, they romped home to win 2 cases of Virgin wine with our compliments.
The Yorkshire C&I Group Xmas Quiz raised over £360 for the nominated charity Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice and the charity’s business card draw was won by Sian Lewis of Pace.
Our grateful thanks go out to the entire committee for letting us be involved in what proved to be a fabulous evening. Particular thanks to Jason and his ‘glamorous assistant’ Ben Murphy for recording the ‘scores on the doors’.
With a total of 102 points up for grabs, the leader board looked like this at the end of the night:
- HSBC (85 points)
- Premier Farnell and Florit Brooke (jointly on 78 points)
- DAC Beachcroft (75)
- Pace (74)
- Clarion and Irwin Mitchell (73)
- Provident Financial and DWF (71)
- Communisis (66)

Happily, the majority of these photos were taken before a number of sore heads were in the formative stages…
We look forward to seeing you for the Annual Dinner on 5th February.
