Norfolk Businesses raise funds for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice at Charity Quiz
One of East Anglia’s leading recruitment specialists, Pure Resourcing Solutions (Pure) hosted a fun-packed annual charity quiz night last night (Thursday March 12th) raising £2,107 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice (EACH)
The evening saw brainy businesses gathering at Dunston Hall Hotel in Norwich to raise money for the East Anglian charity dedicated to providing support to families and care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk.
Teams such as ‘My drinking team has a trivia problem!’ from Victory Housing and ‘Booja Bubbles’ from Booja Booja turned Einstein for the evening to answer brain-busting questions, however, it was Team Energy Resources, that claimed the quiz crown with each lucky team member winning a bottle of champagne. Second place went to Aquaterra winning Cinema City tickets and third place to NCHC winning a Hotel Chocolat goodie bag.
A raffle also proved popular with superb prizes including a silent auction offering a made to measure or off the peg jacket or suit from Wensum Tailoring. These were snapped up by a team member from Smithfield Foods and TRO with all proceeds going to EACH.
Joseph O’Sullivan, Manager of Pure’s Norwich Office, says, “The quiz night was a huge success which is largely down to all the fantastic businesses that came along to support such a worthy cause. We’re delighted to have been able to raise such a wonderful amount for EACH. I would like to thank everyone that attended, donated and contributed generously to the event and hope they can join us again next year!”
Carol Plunkett, Fundraiser at EACH Norfolk, says,“On behalf of EACH, I would like to thank all participating businesses and Pure for their support. All care provided from the hospice is free and available 24/7 and we rely on fundraising initiatives like this to continue to care for local life-threatened children, and support for their families, helping them to make the most of life, no matter how short. “
Pure is committed to its charity partners across the region and has raised £83,304.68 to date.
