Cheltenham businesses battle it out for charity

11 February 2013

More than twenty Gloucestershire businesses took part in a quiz night organised by Willans LLP’s charity team, raising more than £1,360 for Cobalt, their chosen charity of the year.

The money has been donated to the Cheltenham-based medical charity to help fund nurse Megan Willsher’s specialist support for teenage and young adult cancer patients, aged 15 to 24.

Teams paid £25 to enter the quiz. More money was raised throughout the evening by various means including a charity raffle and auction of tickets and prizes donated by the business community.

The winners of the quiz were the Lloyds TSB team closely followed by Willans, Clydesdale Bank, Crowe Clark Whitehill and Investec.

A member of Willans’ charity team said:

“I was delighted by the success of our first charity quiz fundraiser. It was a fantastic evening, attended by so many local professionals.

“With the business community’s incredible support and generosity in donating prizes and fielding quiz teams, we have raised a significant sum for our nominated charity, Cobalt. It is fantastic to know that by helping this charity, we are supporting local young people in need.

“Congratulations to the winners and we look forward to doing a quiz again next year.”

Zena Giles, fundraiser at Cobalt said:

“Willans have been relentless and at times, ingenious in their fundraising, having raised well over £4,000 for Cobalt already. We are very grateful for their fantastic support. 

“Thanks too, to everyone who took part in the quiz. The money raised will touch the lives of some of the youngest cancer patients in the county.”
