Nick Fayers was MD of Barnes Construction and chairman of Ipswich Interact, who died in December 2017 after a longstanding illness, MEN1.

The event which took place at Greshams in Ipswich was sponsored by MLM Group and had over 200 people taking part. The night was filled with laughs and fierce competition from all, and after 12 rounds of tough questions and no phones allowed, the winning team was declared as ‘Inquizative’ from BDO Ltd.

Steve Oliver chairman at Ipswich-based MLM said: “This was a fantastic event in memory of Nick and proved extremely successful. We thank all who attended and donated gifts and money to the Nick Fayers Amend Fund. With their help and support the money raised will go directly to support further MEN1 research.”
