After the success of our very first charity quiz evening last year, we’re rolling it out into an annual event as a way to raise support for the Alzheimer’s Society. Alongside around 150 friends, family and the wider Freshminds network, we hosted round two on 5th July in central London. Alzheimer’s support is something close to the hearts of Freshminds so we’re delighted to have raised over £2000 going directly to the charity and we hope to continue to raise much more!
The Alzheimer’s Society is the only UK charity investing in research into dementia care, cause, cure and prevention. They have committed to spending £150 million on cutting-edge research over the next decade and we’re proud to be united against dementia with them.
Alongside the quiz, we also collected funds via a prize draw with some generous contributions towards the event from great companies, including Made.com, Sway bar, Ultimate Power Club, PayasUGym, Hotel Chocolat, Handsome Badger, HotPod Yoga and Blow.
Overall it was a fantastic evening, only slightly hampered by the fact that, during a fever pitch of national pride pre the World Cup semi-finals, four teams gave themselves the same name “it’s coming home” which made it pretty tricky to identify the winning team!
We very much look forward to an even bigger and even better charity quiz in 2019. If you would like to find out more then visit our JustGiving page where you can also donate directly to the charity.
