Seeing as it’s been a while since we wrote a blog I thought we’d start things off again with a really positive one.
We try to regularly get our clients together along with ourselves and have a fun quiz but this time we decided to not only have fun & test our brains but to also donate all proceeds to The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice which is a charity very close to our hearts.
Maisie, The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice representative gave us an info talk before hand to let everyone know what the hospice is all about and how much money it needs each year to survive – millions!!. It made it all the more important for us as a company to do what we could. It was a great night, with a fantastic turnout.
We managed to raise £306 on the night. Along with the actual quiz, we also had a couple of random games – the ‘heads and tails’ game raised was won by Susan from Space & People who went home that night with a lovely bottle of champagne with the £1 nearest the bottle game won by our very own Consultant Daniel who makes up part of our Permanent IT Team. Star of the night was Scott, aka Tony Questionmark???? Who is part of our Business Operations team; he was an exceptionally good quiz master & compare, very witty, slick and really kept the crowd engaged, so well done Scott.
We were over whelmed at the generosity of donations that came in for raffle prizes so we’d like to say a huge thank you to the following companies, Equinox 10, FPSG, G4S, Goddess Day Spa, i-PAYE, James Martin Hairdressing, JC Decaux, McGrath Opticians, Metro Sandwich Company, Prêt a Manger, R&J Flooring and Space & People. Your generosity was greatly appreciated. We’d also like to say a huge thank you to all that attended including Kwik Fit, JC Decaux, Life Technologies, Monster, Space & People, Oval Group and Glasgow University. Space & People were the victors on the night – they won most raffle prizes & the quiz over all, so well done to them.
We do also have to give a special pat on the back to our National Accounts Manager Kirsty who recently ran…..and I do mean ran and not walked, a 5k which raised a further £410 for The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice…Well done Kirsty. So all in all it was a fun night, we did our bit for a great charity & we got to give our brains a flex too. Without everyone that participated it wouldn’t have been possible so we really hope to see you all at our next one.
