Eleven teams helped raise more than £1,000 for the British Heart Foundation as part of the charity’s Big Diss Quiz.
The winning team, from Steeles Law, received the BHF trophy and voucher for a half-page colour advert in the Mercury.
The event took place at the Greyhound pub, with £1,002 raised to invest in pioneering research, patient care and equipment.
Alex Mayer, BHF fundraising manager, said: “Our heartfelt thanks to the teams for taking part, the companies who donated a fantastic 32 raffle prizes and quiz master Nick Woods for their support.
“One fundraising event can make such a difference: £5 will provide a free DVD to the parents of a baby born with a heart condition while the £1,000 raised at the quiz night is enough to fund a specialist heart failure nurse for a week.”
Chris Moore, from the Steeles Law team, said: “I have been interested in the work of the British Heart Foundation since a few years ago when my cousin, who was in her thirties, died of a heart-related condition leaving three young children.”
