Back 2 School Quiz Night

29th September 2023

On Thursday 28th September, we held our Smart Start Back 2 School Quiz – raising funds to support local struggling families with the uniform/kit their children need for school – at the Manchester Marriott Victoria and Albert Hotel.

We had 17 teams taking part and together we managed to raise over £9,500 for Smart Start, a phenomenal amount. We must say congratulations to our winning team 'Farley's Angels' - Farleys Solicitors LLP, but thank you to all 17 who created an incredible atmosphere. There was plenty of laughter with some cracking singing too. The evening was expertly hosted by our good friend Dominic Walker who once again had everyone up on their feet, singing and throwing some rather interesting shapes!!
