Pure hosted its annual Essex charity quiz night, bringing local businesses and clients together for a battle of the brains which raised over £1,500 for local charities the J’s Hospice and Kids Inspire.
The evening, which has become renowned for its playful rivalry between local organisations, saw 20 teams take part to pit their wits against each other and raise money for the two charities. The teams included people from CHP, Birkett Long and Macquarie Energy Leasing. The overall winners were a team from Lakehouse who were presented with a bottle of Champagne each.
The event, held at the Holiday Inn in Basildon on Thursday 19th April, also included a raffle, with an array of fantastic prizes, generously donated by local businesses to help raise further funds.
Ben Farrow, director and manager of Pure’s Chelmsford office, said, “Our annual charity quiz is one of our main fundraising activities and we have chosen to once again support both the J’s Hospice and Kids Inspire. We have developed strong connections with these fantastic charities and we are proud to be able to support the excellent work they do. I would like to thank everyone who attended, donated and contributed to the event, helping us to raise such an excellent amount to be split between these two extremely worthwhile charities.”
