A DOUBLE cash boost has been provided for two charities after a quiz staged by Lancashire's business community.

The Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity and Buddy Bag Foundation (BBF) has each received £2,150 following WHN Solicitors fourth annual bash.

Quiz masters from BBF walked away with the first prize trophy, with PM&M second and Freshfields PR placed third. A raffle, with prizes including a bottle of champagne, also boosted the coffers.

Michael Shroot, director at the Blackburn-based firm, said: "We owe a great debt of thanks to everyone who came along to support our charity quiz event in aid of these two very deserving charities.

"It was a thoroughly enjoyable event and everyone contributed fully to its success."
