BYZ Quiz Quest

On Thursday 17th November 2016, the Cummins Mellor team held the first ever ‘Quiz Quest’ for Blackburn Youth Zone, and what a night it was!quiz

Over 100 enthusiastic individuals, representing businesses throughout Lancashire, gathered together at the Blackburn Rugby Club to battle it out for the accolade of being crowned ‘Lancashire’s Brainiest Business’.

Thanks to the generosity of everyone involved, we raised £4000 which will all go towards supporting the “Get a Job” programme being run by the team at Blackburn Youth Zone. This programme is aimed at supporting young people aged 16 – 24 years, gain the right skills for employment.

Alongside the overwhelming support of businesses entering teams, has been the generosity of both companies and individuals alike in donating an array of over 20 fantastic raffle prizes which included; vouchers for Michelin Star Restaurant Northcote, overnight stay at the Dunkenhalgh Hotel and Afternoon Tea at the Lowry Hotel in Manchester.

After 10 rounds of questions covering varying topics, the end of the night saw the title of BYZ Quiz Quest Champions 2016 go to Graham and Brown. Who were presented with medals and a winner’s cake made by members of Blackburn Youth Zone. Second place was awarded to Blackburn Rugby Club and joint third went to Pierce Accountants and Woodcocks Howarth & Nutall solicitors!
