waltonwagner Raise £12,000 at Third Annual Charity Pub Quiz
Every October for the past three years, waltonwagner have hosted their annual charity pub quiz – not only to treat our colleagues and industry friends to a night of head-scratching, prize-winning fun, but to try and raise as much money as we can for some very worthy causes. And of course, this year was no exception.
Last year, twelve teams of five put their skills – and their general knowledge – to the test at the Prince Alfred pub in Queensway and, thanks to their help, we managed to raise £4,000 for the University College Hospital Cancer Fund, who did a fantastic job treating one of our colleagues when he was admitted to the centre three years ago.
Following the success of last year’s event, we vowed to make this year’s quiz night bigger and better than any other fundraising event we have done before. To do that, we extended our guest list to twenty teams, and moved to a brand-new central London venue. In addition, this year’s quiz saw the introduction of VIP tables – each of whom received a dedicated waltonwagner table host for the duration of the quiz, as well as some surprise treats on the night.
This year, for the first time in three years, we also had two chosen charities – the University College Hospital Cancer Fund, and The Lullaby Trust. While the former aims to ensure that all people with cancer, their families and carers receive a world-class service from diagnosis through treatment and beyond, the latter provides specialist support for bereaved families, promotes expert advice on safer baby sleep and raises awareness of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
On the 17th October, we were joined by a hundred of our industry friends – including contractors, architects, interior designers and engineers – for an evening of fun at Balls Brothers Mayfair. At the end of the night, team Fairhurst was crowned winner with an impressive final score of 66, while Lees Associates and the joint team of Franchi Plc & Walter Lilly came in second and third place, respectively.
Thanks to all your help and very generous donations, we managed to smash our initial fundraising goal and raised an incredible £12,000 for the two charities – three times the amount from last year!
We hope everyone had just as much fun as we did, and we will see you all again next year!
