‘We will make life better’ was the main focus of Tuesday night, as members of the Sibbalds team participated in the HSBC charity quiz to raise money for Newlife Foundation for Disabled Children.
Our competitive sides came out as two Sibbalds teams were entered to go face to face with other businesses in the Derby area and win the glory of being Quiz Champion!
After three rounds of general knowledge questions ranging from famous faces to sport and geography, it became apparent later in the quiz that Sibbalds weren’t likely to be the overall winners. However our internal focus shifted on the rivalry between Sibbalds team A and Sibbalds team B. Winners being team A by a mere one point!
After some superb food, provided by Moonsha Japanese Restaurant who hosted the event, the raffle was drawn….this was Sibbalds time to shine, winning THREE prizes in a row. All in all, a great night was had by everyone and we all managed to learn something new too.
Most importantly, money was raised for Newlife Foundation for Disabled Children, which will go a long way to assisting children and families in need. Everyone was moved as a spokesperson from Newlife ended the night by explaining the great work that the charity does and how the money that we raised will tremendously improve many lives.

Preparation has now begun for the 2016 quiz. We are determined to become the next victors!
