Brain Game success

brain game winners 2008

Strictly Come Dancing star and broadcaster, John Sergeant, confirmed that KPMG have officially got the biggest brains in the City after they waltzed away with the Brain Game trophy and helped raise over £53,000 in aid of St John Ambulance.

Sergeant, who has been quizmaster at the event for five years, has been quite a hit on the BBC series.

He said: 'It was a very enjoyable evening and much easier than having to dance in front of ten million people. KPMG, who triumphed once again, were very worthy winners.'

The whole evening has been such fun, especially at such a stressful time in the City, and we’re looking forward to next year already.

Karen Bloomfield, head of the KPMG team, said: ‘We are over the moon to have won. We were quietly confident we’d do well but to have beaten such tough competition feels amazing.

'The whole evening has been such fun, especially at such a stressful time in the City, and we’re looking forward to next year already. We also hope John does well in Strictly – he’s got our vote!'

The fundraising 'Brain Game' quiz took place on Wednesday 15 October at the stunning London Guildhall. Lord Jeffrey Archer acted as compère and charity auctioneer at the event, which was sponsored by chartered accountants Dixon Wilson, and raised over £10,000 of much needed funds to continue the life saving work of St John Ambulance.
