Sporting Dinner Raises Record Amount For Two Local Charities

The 10th annual Isle of Man ‘PwC Question of Sport’ was a knockout success. Traditionally held later in the year the dinner saw twenty one teams attend the much loved event and battle it out for the Isle of Man Sporting and Dining Club Silver Claret Jug.

Ugland Marine were this year’s champions with two-time winners Baker Tilly close on their heels, followed by Bridson and Horrox and EAM.

The evening raised a fantastic £3820.00, a record amount for the ‘PwC Question of Sport’. A further donation from PwC Isle of Man meant that Isle of Man Foodbank and Victim Support Isle of Man each received £2,250.

Ian Clague, Senior Partner at PwC Isle of Man, said: ‘It’s wonderful to see the ‘PwC Question of Sport’ enter its tenth year. With many thanks to John Wannenburgh and the Isle of Man Sporting and Dining Club for organising and hosting another great night, despite the challenges faced in current times.’

John Wannenburgh from the Sporting & Dining Club added: ‘What can I say, another fantastic event with everyone enjoying themselves and raising money for two great local charities. Both charities have seen a significant rise in demand for their services during the pandemic and now more than ever their reliance upon donations is crucial. It was touch and go at times whether we could host the event given the restrictions but it turned out brilliant. I would like to thank PwC Isle of Man for their continued support and for the support and generosity of all who attended the evening.’

PwC Isle of Man’s charity of choice on the evening was Victim Support Isle of Man who are an Independent Isle of Man charity, which offers free and confidential help to victims and witnesses of crime, their family and friends. They provide support for people affected by Crime, Death by Road Traffic Collisions, Unusual Death or Domestic Abuse.

Sports & Dining Club’s charity of choice was the Isle of Man Foodbank. Operating since 2013 they provide crisis support in the form of food parcels to families and individuals in need, provide support to help get beyond a crisis, and plan for a return to independence, advice on cooking with minimal facilities and are a means of distributing surplus food from suppliers to those in need.

Next year’s event will be held on Thursday 29 September 2022, if you would like to book a table or to find out more visit the Sporting and Dining club page.
