A charity quiz night held by retailer Glasswells last month raised £950 for the East Anglian Air Ambulance. Eighteen teams, made up by members of staff at Glasswells, met in the in-store Place to Eat restaurant to battle it out for the title of Quiz Team Champions 2018.
Now in its 12th year, the annual quiz has raised thousands of pounds for many different local and national charities. The furniture sales team, Parker Knowledge, won the 2018 competition.
“The annual quiz night has become an important and much-anticipated event in Glasswells calendar,” explains MD Paul Glasswell. “We are over the moon to have raised such a significant sum of money for such a worthwhile cause – I cannot thank the staff enough for their continued enthusiasm and generosity.”
Mark Wilson, community fundraiser in Suffolk for the charity, adds: “EAAA are delighted to receive this very generous donation from the fantastic team at Glasswells. It’s great too that everyone had fun during their annual quiz evening whilst raising funds for EAAA, which receives no regular Government funding. Every donation is hugely helpful as it allows our two helicopters and medical crews based at Cambridge and Norwich to continue attending on average eight life-saving missions every day across East Anglia."
