£751 raised at Poultec Training Quiz Night!

Poultec Training hosted its first Quiz Night in aid of the Little Lifts charity, a charity supported by Poultec who provide the most thoughtfully handpicked and packed gifts to support people with breast cancer. Poultec Training; a private training provider delivering Apprenticeships, Study Programmes and Short Courses across the country welcomed locals and staff members to this fundraising evening. Sixty people attended the Quiz Night on Friday 27th January enjoying a fulfilled evening answering challenging questions, eating homemade food and winning fabulous raffle prizes. We are proud to confirm that we raised a total of £751 which will be donated to the fantastic cause Little Lifts.

Poultec Training staff members were all motivated to make this fundraiser successful in honour of anyone who is currently going through breast cancer treatment. Breast cancer can strike anyone at any time, every year approximately 55,000 women and 350 men are diagnosed with breast cancer and 36,000 women living with secondary (incurable) every year, making it the most common cancer. Little Lifts aim is to reach them all providing them with free, thoughtfully curated Little Lifts gift boxes when receiving chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatment.

The Quiz Night was hosted at South Green Park by Quiz Master/Café Verde supervisor Amy Skittrall. The evening was a pre-booked ticketed event which sold out within two weeks of advertisement. Tickets included a homemade chicken, beef, lamb or falafel burger served with hand cut chips all made by Café Verde’s talented chefs. The quiz had eight rounds which covered topics such as general knowledge, food/drink, baby faces, history/geography, music, guess the logo, flags and guess the gadget. Two whole raffle ticket books were sold raising a total of £171 before the quiz even started. The raffle was drawn in the break and many players took home some fabulous prizes.

The atmosphere throughout the evening was great all teams enjoyed the range of questions and the results were tight. With all 11 teams scoring over the half way mark but team 11 named ‘I Thought This Was Speed Dating’ took the winning title as well as six bottles of bubbly!

We are proud to be a Platinum sponsors to Little Lifts and it is our mission to raise as much money as possible for them!
