We are delighted to announced that we have raised £300 for The Bureau at our very first quiz which took place at Cask & Kitchen in Glossop.

Over 30 people attended, plus representatives from Davis Blank Furniss and The Bureau, with 10 teams competing. The winners were Team Quizzy McQuizface; Team Tequila Mockingbird was second ,which was captained by local Councillor Damien Greenhalgh; followed by Team No Clue Crew who came in third. The Best Team Name Category went to Cask and Question. Topics included general knowledge, TV & film, music, science and nature & Glossop.

The Bureau was established in 1979 and works with the belief that all members of the community will have both support needs of their own and the capacity to support others at various times in their lives – in some cases simultaneously. Its goal is to create solutions through effective volunteer action and collaboration.  It now offers a variety of services including practical and social support, volunteering, economic wellbeing, infrastructure support and partnerships which includes working with local groups, the public sector and regional/national bodies to build strong and innovative volunteer communities.

Kirsty Morbey, partner at Davis Blank Furniss, said: “As a business, we are passionate about supporting local causes so joining forces with The Bureau for the quiz has been fantastic. It delivers vital services to the local community so raising £300 to help them was the icing on the cake. As ever, the people of Glossop showed their generosity and demonstrated why giving back is at the very heart of the town.”

Lauren Moore, operations manager at The Bureau, added: “Everyone at The Bureau would like to thank Davis Blank Furniss for putting on such as great night and for the quizzers who came along and gave so generously. The donation will directly help us to support people across our community.”

Excellent experience start to finish – always very responsive to any queries and the turnaround on the property I was buying was very quick, even in the busy time leading up to stamp duty deadline. Jenny was always very helpful and went above and beyond to close on a short timescale.

Ben Armitage

“Very approachable, practical solutions to problems, but most of all very responsive which I personally think is very important because if you need help, you need it quickly, or at least to know someone is looking at it for you”.

Joanne Rowe, Finance Director, Greater Manchester Chamber

“Always able to contact, very approachable, friendly and professional”

Nives Feely, JAM Recruitment

“I believe I have been able to establish a professional working relationship with everyone I have come into contact. Importantly, I sense the relationships which have been established give me the confidence that I can make contact with Davis Blank Furniss at any time and on any matter. I would also like to express my thanks to the very impressive “gatekeepers” who work in reception, not only for making me very welcome, but also for their professionalism”

Bill Pryke, CEO, Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors

Robert Amsbury (Conveyancing Client)

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for the ongoing support and assistance the firm has offered to our parents over the years. I hope also that we may be able to call on you if necessary in the future.”

Valerie Fisher (Probate Client)

“Jo always provides great service, understands our needs and delivers on her promises. Our needs are relatively simple but the complexity arises out of the volume of work and short time frames, Jo always delivers.”

Peter Fernandez, Corporate Director at Royal Bank of Scotland

“A big thank you to all who dealt with my wife’s claim… We would not hesitate to recommend Davis Blank Furniss to anyone that may be in a situation like we have been…”

Anon (Personal Injury client)

“Before putting my case in Kirsty (Morbey)’s capable hands I’ve met a couple of other solicitors. None of them listen to me as intently as Kirsty and showed me as much empathy and understanding as she did. Simultaneously she was able to look at my case from legal perspective, explain all the options and follow each of our meetings with written summary of the discussed matters (in timely manner). Her advice was invaluable and led me to successfully ending the case matter (hopeful for good). I’m forever grateful for he work and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for reliable, knowledgeable and committed solicitor”.
