waltonwagner Raises £4,000 in Second Annual Charity Pub Quiz
This time last year, waltonwagner hosted its first ever charity pub quiz to support the work of a charity that is particularly close to our hearts – the British Heart Foundation. We had such a great time organising the quiz and received such great feedback from all of our teams that we have vowed to make this an annual event – and make this year’s quiz night even bigger and better.
This year, our chosen charity was the University College Hospital Cancer Fund, who did a fantastic job treating one of our colleagues when he was admitted to the centre two years ago. Throughout his time there, the kindness and support he received from every member of staff – from receptionists to nurses, oncologists and the entire specialist team – was exceptional.
Despite going through a difficult time, he felt looked after and had incredible support from the entire team at UCH, who walked him through the whole process and were with him every step of the way. The work that they do and the care they provide to their patients is second to none, which is why we wanted to give something back and support their work through this year’s event.
On the 5th of October, sixty of our industry friends – including architects, constructors, engineers and interior designers – joined us for an evening of head-scratching, clue-conjuring and prize-winning fun at the Prince Alfred pub in Queensway. After a night of quizzing, team Sizebreed were crowned winners, with Edward Pearce and Box Associates in second and third place respectively.
Thanks to all your help and generous donations, we managed to raise nearly £4,000 for the charity, which will go towards supporting UCLH patients and staff and help them remain one of the leading cancer specialist hospitals in North London.
We hope everyone had just as much fun putting their skills to the test as we did organising and hosting the event, and we will see you all again next year! As always, we would like to thank everyone who joined us and helped us raise money for the charity: Constructure, MSMR Architects, Price & Myers, Deconstruct UK, Dendy Byrne, Second London Wall, No. 12 Studio and Matt Goldsworthy, Burke Hunter Adams, Box Associates, Sizebreed, Edward Pearce, and of course our brilliant quiz master, Nick Perkins.
