TV’s master of quizzes Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett was the special guest at the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust’s ‘Beast Of A Quiz’.

The sold out event took place at Berties in Elland and raised £4080.31 for the cancer charity.

Guests took on The Chaser in a quiz event and then the winning team faced The Beast in a nail-biting head to head round, with Mark only winning by one point!

The event was kindly supported by Halifax based Sheena Doherty, a Principal Partner with Sovereign Wealth who said: “It was a pleasure to sponsor such an amazing event.

“The atmosphere and genuine enjoyment from everyone on the evening was splendid.

There was also a raffle on the night with top prizes being an iPad mini and a beauty gift hamper worth over £500 which was donated by Harveys of Halifax.

Julie Smith, who attended the quiz, said: “The event was so well organised and promoted (big congratulations to the LCYCT event organisers), lovely raffle prizes and Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett was happy to sign books, photographs and have photos taken with everyone – what a gentleman”.

The charity would like to thank everyone who attended the event, the University of Huddersfield students who helped organise the event, andgive a special thanks to Mark Labbett, David Bill, Sheena Doherty and Paul Simpson helping to make the event a success.
