Charity Quiz 2019

Glasswells Charity Quiz Night Raises £1,140 for the My WiSH Charity.

 

Twenty-one teams, made up by members of staff at Glasswells, plus doctors and nurses from West Suffolk Hospital, met in the in-store Place to Eat restaurant in Bury St Edmunds to battle it out for the coveted title of Quiz Team Champions 2019. Now in its thirteenth year, the annual quiz has raised thousands of pounds for many different local and national charities, with this year’s funds being donated to the My WiSH charity, to provide festive decorations for the children’s Rainbow Ward.

The competition was fierce, with the doctor’s team, ‘’Rainbow Blood Pressure’, just pipping the others to the post. “The annual quiz night has become an important and much anticipated event in Glasswells calendar,” explained Paul Glasswell, Managing Director. “We are over the moon to have raised such a significant sum of money, which will certainly help to brighten up the Rainbow ward for the children and their families over the Christmas period. I cannot thank our staff enough for their continued enthusiasm and generosity.”

Amy Hatch, My WiSH Charity fundraising officer, said: “We are so grateful to Glasswells for raising such an incredible amount of money to support our wonderful Rainbow children’s ward. It really is very festive now, thanks to everyone’s support.

“Having spoken to some patients and their families this week, I can hand on heart say that it really is making an impact to how our younger patients are feeling on the ward, and helping them to feel a little bit more at home while in our care.

“Nobody wants to spend the festive period in hospital, but thanks to Glasswells and our other supporters and fundraisers, hopefully our young patients will still have a magical experience, even though they’re feeling poorly.”
