YOUNG MEMBERS WEST MIDLANDS
LONDON SUPPORTS HOMELESS CHARITY
The London Young Members Committee hosted its annual quiz in April at the Steam Bar & Restaurant. Some 22 teams joined quizmaster Jon Hancock, performance management director at Lloyd’s, for this sold-out event, to raise much-needed funds for homeless charity The 999 Club and compete for the title of ‘IIL YMC Charity Quiz Winner 2018’. More than £3,600 was raised on the evening for the homeless charity, nominated by committee member Sara Baker from Marsh. The 999 Club provides a warm and welcoming environment to
anyone that is homeless and helps equip them with the ability and conﬁdence to learn new skills, ﬁnd work and reconnect with family and friends. Congratulations to the
winning team, ‘Risky Quizness’, comprising: James Bardsley, Kennedys; Emily Dyson, Mayer Brown; Ben Sanders, Mayer Brown; Logan Perry, Munich Re; Alys Jones, Mayer Brown; and Simon Wilson, Lloyd’s.
