Shepherd and Wedderburn lends its support (and quiz skills) to Marie Curie

Posted: 20th October 2017

Defending champions, Shepherd and Wedderburn, made a valiant effort to retain their title at the Marie Curie Glasgow Brain Game. While the team may have come in 3rd, the event helped the organisation raise over £150,000.

The firm’s team of John Gallacher, Judith Stephenson, Andrew Winton and Chris Garden, together with guests from EY, BDO, T Lawrie and Partners Ltd, Mahon Land Limited, took on the competition at the Hilton Hotel on 12 October. The annual quiz was hosted this year by Hazel Irvine and Rob McLean.

Having won in 2016, the team was tasked with defending their hard won title, but fell just short this year. However, a 3rd place finish out of the 44 participants meant it was another good showing.

And while the Shepherd and Wedderburn team may not have taken home the top prize this year, partner Al Frood will be on your radio waves very soon. He was successful in a joint auction bid that will see him appear as a special guest of Radio Clyde’s Superscoreboard! Al will team up with Hugh Keevins and Derek Johnstone to discuss the current talking points in Scottish football, so stay tuned.

Well done to all the teams who came together for this great cause!
