Below is the Press Release issued by St David's Hospice, huge thank you to all NWBC members and their guests who helped to make this a record breaking evening
St David’s Hospice hosted their third ‘test the team’ corporate quiz last month raising a record amount for end of life care in North West Wales.
The mind boggling fundraising event took place on Thursday, 17th May at Venue Cymru, Llandudno. It is an ongoing working relationship between North Wales Business Club, Barclays and St David’s Hospice.
The Quizmaster, former international rugby union player Rupert Moon, kept everyone entertained throughout the evening as 36 teams enjoyed seven rounds and battled it out through 80 questions including general knowledge, observation, Wheel of Fortune, musical magic.
The ‘ Les Quizerables’ team from Barclays Bank took the 1st prize trophy knocking last year’s winners, Dragon Investments team off the top spot.
The quiz was a charity event and raised an outstanding £12,724, bringing the total for three years to over £31,000.
Hospice Corporate Fundraiser, Kathryn Morgan Jones said:
“We are extremely grateful to Barclays Bank and the North Wales Business Club for their hard work, making such a successful quiz night. Also a special thank you to Rupert for giving his time free of charge to host, and to everyone who took part and donated so generously.”
“St David’s Hospice receives a very small amount of funding from the NHS and therefore relies heavily on the kindness and dedication of its supporters. Events such as the quiz help us to continue our vital work right across the Conwy, Gwynedd and Anglesey.”
John Pitchford, Corporate Banking Director for Barclays said:
“We are delighted with the amount raised for St David’s Hospice and would like to thank everyone who supported us to make this happen. Alongside our Shared Growth Ambition, Barclays has a fantastic Colleague Community Programme that encourages employees to get involved in the causes we care about. It’s about giving back our skills, time and energy to support our local communities – so we’re thrilled to have raised this money.”
David Williams, Chairman North Wales Business Club added: "It’s been an absolute pleasure, and great fun, to have worked with St David's to make the quiz such a success. Our partnership with the Hospice and Barclays Bank goes from strength to strength and we are so pleased to have raised such a substantial amount for such a great cause. The North Wales Business Club understands its responsibility to contribute to the communities in which it operates and this has been a great opportunity to do that”
The ‘Test the Team’ Corporate Quiz night will return in 2019 on Thursday 16th May, to register your interest please call Kathryn Morgan-Jones on 01492 879058.

A dramatic image of stone-slab cutting in Derbyshire has earned Adrian Waine, from Ellesmere Port in Cheshire, the best professional photographer award in the EEF Manufacturing Photography Competition.
Adrian took the photograph at Natural Stone Surfaces, a supplier of bespoke work surfaces, on behalf of Atlas Copco, a manufacturer of air systems. It captures the use of diamond tooling and compressed air to cut through marble slabs in the making of kitchen worktops.
He was named best professional photographer at the final of EEF’s manufacturing photography competition held in the House of Commons in London.
The EEF, which describes itself as the voice of British manufacturing, says Adrian wowed judges with his eye-catching image Stone Slab Cutting taken at Natural Stone Surfaces’ 25,000 sq ft state of the art plant in Derby.
The competition, now in its eighth year, seeks creative images that capture the essence of modern manufacturing. Photographs can portray any stage of manufacturing from design, process and technology in action through to the finished product and can cover traditional or high-tech sectors.
Adrian, who works from his studio in Ellesmere Port for numerous international clients, said: “Manufacturing is a fantastic subject matter offering such diverse opportunities for dramatic or challenging shots. It’s a very visual industry but still requires a good eye, lighting skills and patience to do it justice”.
Adrian is pictured with extracts from The Times and The Telegraph alongside his award. He’s surprised at how extensive press coverage has been which clearly reinforces the strength of British manufacturing and demonstrates the importance and need for good photography to be used as a promotional tool, especially to those industries in the exports market.
