Pure hosted its annual Norwich charity quiz night on Thursday 13 April, bringing local businesses and clients together for a fun evening which raised over £2,700 for Norfolk’s cancer charity The Big C.
The battle of the brains saw 36 teams of four from organisations across the county pitting their wits against each other. The teams included people from Age UK, Tax Assist, Price Bailey and Kaplan Financial, and there was plenty of friendly rivalry on the night. The overall winners were a team from Anovo with each team member presented with £20 Cinema City gift cards.
The event, held at the Sprowston Manor Hotel, also included a raffle to help raise further funds with prizes all kindly donated by local businesses.
Joseph O’Sullivan, Manager of Pure’s Norwich Office, said: “We’ve been running our annual charity quiz nights for eight years and they’ve always been extremely well supported. It’s a fantastic way for local businesses to come together, support a good cause and to have fun at the same time. This year our Norwich team has pledged to support The Big C for all our charity activity and we’re delighted to have raised such a wonderful amount for this exceptional organisation. I would like to thank everyone who attended, donated and contributed so generously to the event. We hope to see you all again next year.”
The Big C provides drop in support and information centres across Norfolk and Waveney. These are used by thousands of people affected by cancer every year and provide valuable information about diagnosis, treatments, side effects and recovery. The support also includes trained staff who can provide emotional help, support, and complementary therapies.
Last year’s Norwich quiz night also raised over £2,000 for EACH. Pure’s annual quiz nights, held at all four offices throughout the year, are just one of the many charity events the professional recruitment specialists for the East of England run throughout the year.
