Another successful Beaufort Financial Charity Quiz Night

The Wild Lime at Reading witnessed another evening of fun as Beaufort Financial hosted its charity quiz, aimed at raising awareness of a leading local charity.

For the second year, Beaufort Financial has joined the Berkshire Community Foundation Business Philanthropy Club, to raise awareness of Berkshire Community Foundation, as well as raising much needed funds. BCF provides advice, distributes grants and raises the profile of local charities and communitygroups in Berkshire.

Fourteen teams participated in the Reading Professionals Quiz, representing lawyers, accountants, bankers, insurers and other leading local professional firms raised £1,200 for the local charities and groups that BCF supports. Jelf Insurance came first and Gardner Leader LLP second.

Mark Dolby, Director, Beaufort Financial said: We have a very strong culture of community giving and support and we are delighted to draw together our like minded professional peers to raise money for the Berkshire Community Foundation, which does such amazing work in and around the Reading area.

Jim Fyfe, who is soon to step down as Philanthropy Director at BCF after four years at the helm said: Once again we are grateful to Mark and his colleagues at Beaufort Financial for their ongoing support at BCF. The charity quiz night is a fun way of making some very serious contributions to the way we work.

“Not only that, Beaufort Financial has recently renewed its commitment to BCF and plays a leading role in our Business Philanthropy Club, helping us to develop relationships with local businesses and professional advisor firms and running events like the quiz night.”

We wish Jim all the very best in his new role at Police Care UK, where he will be Philanthropy Manager, added Mark Dolby.

Berkshire Community Foundation uses local knowledge to connect supporters to the groups and communities, making sure donations are effective and bring the greatest benefit to those most in need. Last year BCF gave over £1 million to a wide range of local projects, from child poverty, to those with mental health issues,the lonely and homeless.
