Seventh annual charity quiz night for Norfolk businesses raises £2,000 for EACH

Pure Resourcing Solutions (Pure) hosted its annual Norwich charity quiz night on Thursday 24 March, bringing local businesses and clients together for a fun evening which raised £2,000 for the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

With 43 teams of four, including teams from Wensum Tailoring and Harrods UK, there was plenty of friendly rivalry on the night. The overall winners were a team from NBI Norwich Biosciences and each team member was presented with a bottle of champagne.

The event, held at the Sprowston Manor Marriott Hotel and Country Club, also included a raffle to help raise further funds. The prizes included cinema tickets, bottles of champagne and an afternoon tea voucher: all kindly donated by local businesses. There was also a silent auction for a tailor-made jacket from Wensum Tailoring, which raised £250.

Joseph O’Sullivan, Manager of Pure’s Norwich Office, said: “This is the seventh year we’ve run our annual quiz night in Norwich and it was a huge success once again. 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.”

EACH supports families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk. The charity relies on voluntary donations for the majority of its income and needs to raise almost £6 million to deliver its services every year.

Last year’s Norwich quiz night also raised over £2,100 for this worthy cause. Pure’s annual quiz nights, held at all four offices throughout the year, are just one of the many charity events the leading recruitment consultancy runs throughout the year. To date it has raised over £100k for 24 charities.
