KPMG| Isle of Man office raises £2,371 for Isle Listen at charity quiz | January 2020

Over 80 people joined a charity quiz held at Woodbourne House, in aid of local charity Isle Listen, and raised £2,371 from entry fees and raffle ticket sales on the night.

Date: Tuesday 05 January 2021

21 teams entered the ‘Quiz of the Nations’, with questions themed around the world, set to challenge the brains and general knowledge of the quiz teams. In typical pub-quiz style, the event was held in good fun and teams battled it out to win the top prize of a trophy and a bottle of prosecco for each team member. The winning team was from Zedra and included Richard Mulhern, Nita MacDonald, Juan Brown and Sian Wilkins.

The event was organised by KPMG in the Isle of Man, which has chosen Isle Listen as its staff-nominated charity. Isle Listen is a charitable initiative whose aim is to equip people on the Isle of Man with the self-management skills needed to navigate the challenges of 21st century life.
