A RECENT quiz night at the home of Worcestershire County Cricket Club, New Road, saw more than £1,000 raised for a charity appeal.

The event was organised by SME Solicitors, and featured quiz teams from various business including Hills, Worcestershire Ambassadors, Andrew Grant and Ormerod Rutter.

The winners were from BRI Asset Management, who called their team the BRI Bulls.

Quizmasters for the evening were Guy Salter, head of employment and data protection at SME and Alan James, from the firm’s wills and probate department.

The event raised money for the state-of-the-art machine to treat prostate cancer.

The machine allows surgeons to perform minimally invasive surgery, removing the prostate gland.

Prostate cancer survivor Brian Wilkes, from Droitwich, led the campaign with Ian Jukes and Paul Markall,

"We are delighted to have had such a good turnout, and to have introduced Ian Jukes, chairman of the Rory the Robot Appeal, to say some words about prostate cancer and the importance of the machine to help save lives.”
