HAMPSHIRE’S biggest business brains were taxed at an event that raised £4,000 for St John Ambulance.

It was a glitzy quiz night with a slap-up dinner at the Rose Bowl in Hedge End sponsored by the University of Portsmouth and hosted by comedian Lucy Porter.

The event also included a drinks reception donated and hosted by the Countess of Portsmouth.

Professor Gioia Pescetto, Dean of the university’s Business School, said: ‘We were very proud to support this incredible organisation in the good work that it does.’

Organiser Michelle Dobson added: ‘It was a fantastic evening and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.’
