A charity quiz night held by four-store retailer Glasswells has raised £1140 for the My WiSH Charity, to provide festive decorations for the children’s Rainbow Ward at West Suffolk Hospital.
Now in its 13th year, the annual quiz has raised thousands of pounds for many different local and national charities. This year's competition saw 21 teams take part, comprising members of staff, doctors and nurses.
“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, 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, adds: “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. 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.”
