Jobshop UK quiz raises funds for hospice
Beating last years’ total by almost £1000, Jobshop UK have helped raise £2860 for local charity, Lewis-Manning Hospice, with their & lsquo;Back to School’ quiz night.
Arriving at Parkstone Grammar school, scuffing their heels and ready to challenge their grey matter, were a variety of cheery faced & lsquo;students’ in a variety of school uniform. Members of the community joined teams made up of local companies, networking groups, local business people and Chamber members, to answer general knowledge questions put to the sometimes raucous teams by Poole Chamber of Trade and Commerce President, Lucy Cooper.
A school dinner of bangers and mash was enjoyed in the canteen while the tuck shop provided old school favourites of Golden Wonder crisps, black jacks, sweetie shrimps and beer and wine for the naughty students!
A silent auction and raffle offered impressive prizes including use of a new Audi for the weekend or a Porche for the day.
Tracey Wood, director of Jobshop UK commented, “We are thrilled to have beaten last year’s total and raised much needed funds for such a worthy charity as Lewis-Manning Hospice.”
