As part of Squire Energy’s ongoing support for the Queen Elizabeth Foundation (QEF), we recently sponsored a charity pub quiz to help raise funds for the non-profit organisation. Held at in a local pub in Leatherhead, the ‘Squire Squirrels’ were amongst a full house of keen quiz goers, ready to test their knowledge. The event was a huge success, raising over £500 for the Queen Elizabeth Foundation, which will go towards the charities work in providing life-changing services to people with disabilities.
Competing on the night were 10 teams, all battling to win a cash prize of £100. In addition to this, there was also a chance for contenders to take part in a raffle and take home wow-worthy prizes which included an Atari console, theatre tickets, craft beer, books and much more!
To kick off the event our Project Manager, Steve Gray made an initial introduction before handing over to Leo Visconti, Director of Engagement and Partnerships at QEF, who spoke about the work the charity does. This was accompanied by a video of its mini powered wheelchairs, known as ‘Bugzis’ and how it has transformed the lives of disabled children.
As the event drew to a close, the scores were tallied up and the result was announced…the Squire Squirrels had made it to first place, tied with a team called Well Hung Jury. Steve Gray recalls “After the tie announcement, the quiz went to a tie-break anagram, so we had to raise our game. Thankfully, our Quotations Manager, Dan Whittington, managed to decode it in no time at all and our Operations Administrator, David Porter, was swiftly up on his feet to get our answer to the Quiz Master, for the Squire Squirrels to be crowned the Pub Quiz Masterminds!”
Gray continues, “It was a fun night which everyone enjoyed with plenty of money raised for Queen Elizabeth Foundation. Our team decided to donate our winning prize to QEF to boost the funds to £507. I’d just like to say a big thank you to everyone that took part.”
