SYCF received £100 for being second and Cavendish Cancer Care was awarded £50 for third place.
Keebles’ senior associate, James Alger, compered the vibrant event comprising six rounds of questions on Yorkshire, geography, music, film and TV, sport and general knowledge.
Michele Wightman, head of Keebles’ private client department, said: “We received so much positive feedback from charities participating in last year’s quiz that we wanted to make it an annual event. Well done to the winners and to everyone involved from these inspirational charities.
“A big thank you’ to Yorkshire Bank for once again sponsoring the event – and to The Showroom for donating its fantastic function room again.”
