A planned route around Bury St Edmunds town centre by 60 people who took part in answering a series of quiz questions along the course has helped to raise funds for charity.

The Bury Challenge was organised by Ensors Chartered Accountants with 13 teams taking part in the event drawn from the company and its many contacts and business relationships across Suffolk.

They stopped at a variety of pubs and hostelries in the town where they were given a series of quiz questions and riddles to answer along the way.

And a total of £1,200 was raised for the My WiSH Charity, which supports the West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust and includes the West Suffolk Hospital as well as Newmarket Hospital and community services, with the money being directed towards funds for a family cancer counsellor at the hospital in Bury St Edmunds.

It’s an annual event which they carry out and last year they raised £1,025 for the hospital charity.

Chris Barrett, Ensors partner in the Bury St Edmunds office, said: “At Ensors, we recognise the incredible work that My WiSH Charity does to support the local community and the NHS in West Suffolk. 

“This is the second year that we fundraised for My WiSH Charity as part of our Bury Challenge event and with the help of local professionals who attended we raised an incredible amount of money. A thoroughly good evening was enjoyed by all and we thank everyone who joined us for their contribution.”

Fundraising manager for My WiSH, Sally Daniels, thanked Ensors for their continued support and said: “Providing a family counsellor to help those that are supporting loved ones through cancer is just so important. We feel it will make a big difference to both our patients and their families but we couldn’t do it without donations like this so huge thanks to all involved.”
