The quiz, attended by more than 100 members of staff, was held after work on Thursday, December 15 and had an international theme. Each team represented a different nation, and the winners were were Israel, who beat Canada after a tense tie-breaker.
Councillor Tony Miller, chairman of the council, said: “The quiz is an evening of fun for our staff who work so hard throughout the year, but more importantly it raises funds for local good causes, and this year’s winners have chosen St Paul’s Hostel as their nominated charity.
“It was a pleasure to present this sum to St Paul’s, which is a fantastic cause; offering a helping hand to those who unfortunately are homeless or in need this Christmas.”
St Paul’s Hostel, in Hillborough, Tallow Hill, provides accommodation for up to 46 single homeless people.
