Norfolk Businesses Raise Money for EACH at Annual Charity Quiz Night

Pure Resourcing Solutions (Pure) in Norwich hosted a fun-packed annual charity quiz night last Thursday (20th March 2014) at the De Vere Dunston Hall Hotel, raising £1,784 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

Forty teams from local businesses with team names such as “Goodbye Doctor Who”, “We Thought It Was A Disco”, “Les Quizerables”, “The Scrambled Eggheads” and  “Sew Smart…Not” gathered at the De Vere Dunston Hall Hotel for the annual charity quiz evening which was organised by Pure -  a leading specialist recruitment consultancy businesses in the East of England.

Norfolk businesses including Heinz, South Norfolk Council, Parker Andrews, Broadland Housing, Wensum Tailoring and Larking Gowen came along for the evening of friendly rivalry.

It was “TEAM Name” from Team Energy, part of the Acteon Group, that claimed the quiz crown, with each lucky team member winning a bottle of champagne. A raffle also proved popular with superb prizes including a round of Golf for 4 at Dunston Hall, Booja Booja chocolates, Chapelfield shopping vouchers and Kettle Foods donated a large case of crisps. In addition, an iPad mini was generously donated by NHS professionals!

Gill Buchanan, Director of Pure, said: “The charity quiz evenings that we organise annually are always such an enjoyable occasion... Not only do they encourage local businesses to join together and contribute to such a fantastic charity as EACH, but also the amount raised always surpasses our expectations. I’d like to thank all of the businesses that contributed to the event. Our relationship with EACH is very important to us and we are so proud to be supporting a wonderful charity.”

Gary Cook, EACH Norfolk Fundraiser, said: “We are extremely grateful to Pure Resourcing Solutions, Norwich for once again supporting EACH with their annual quiz.  We would also like to thank the local business community for getting involved in this fun event whether that is by entering a team into the quiz or supplying a raffle prize.  The fantastic amount raised from the event will go a long way to helping us to deliver our services of caring for local life-threatened children and supporting their families.”

The quiz brings the total that Pure has now raised for EACH in the last decade to over £52,000.
