The teams battled it out in the interactive quiz for the much sought-after Isle of Man Sporting and Dining Silver Claret Jug.

Ugland Marine won the title, the first back to back champions who also won in 2021 second place was taken by ISO (IOM) Ltd.

The evening raised £3,875, and a further donation from PwC Isle of Man has ensured the Isle of Man Woodland Trust and Forget Me Not Dementia Care each received £2,350.

John Wannenburgh from the Sporting & Dining Club added: “It is always a delight to host this event and this year was no different. A full house with everyone involved enjoying themselves in good spirits while raising money for two important causes. I’d like to thank PwC Isle of Man for their ongoing support.”

PwC Isle of Man’s charity of choice on the evening was the Isle of Man Woodland Trust. The Isle of Man Woodland Trust is a locally registered charity whose aim is to protect and maintain the existing woodland of the Isle of Man, to create new woodland on the Island and to enhance the existing woodland by additional planting using predominantly native Manx species.

Nick Halsall, the Senior Partner at PwC Isle of Man, said: “Another fantastic evening organised by John Wannenburgh and the Isle of Man Sporting and Dining Club. I’d like to thank John for organising the night. Having sponsored the event since its inception in 2012 it is always a pleasure to attend and see so many teams having fun and supporting the night. 

“We pledged on the night to match the funds raised for the Isle of Man Woodland Trust to allow our team to plant in the region of 940 new trees in Manx soil. We care about the sustainability of our beautiful Island and taking actionable steps against climate change is the foundation of our worldwide science-based commitment to achieve net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030.”

Falk Horning, Chairperson of The Isle of Man Woodland Trust commented: “We are very grateful to have been picked as a chosen charity for the evening. We are looking forward to working with the team at PwC Isle of Man to plant in the region of 940 new trees by the end of 2023 when the planting seasons allow.”

Next year’s event is planned for September 2023.
