John Grose Peugeot Charity Quiz Night a Great Success!
What type of ship was the Cutty Sark? Who won a ‘Best Actor’ Oscar for the film Training Day? Questions asked at the second annual Ipswich John Grose quiz nights which help to raise over £1,000 for charity.
On Thursday 17th November 15 teams took part in 9 rounds covering a range of subjects at the Peugeot dealership on Goddard Road in Ipswich. The quiz was won by team Force Kindred with an impressive 80 out of a possible 100. The evening raised a fantastic £1,022.51 for BBC Children in Need and St Elizabeth Hospice.
Marketing Manager, Jennifer Reed said: “Members of our team have seen first-hand the fantastic facilities and care services offered by St Elizabeth Hospice and were keen to play our part in helping children across the country through BBC Children in Need, so we were only too pleased to host the quiz night to raise funds for them.”
The Peugeot showroom on Goddard Road offered the perfect venue for the evening. “It was great to welcome people into our dealership who had never visited us before, as well as to see some friendly, familiar faces.” Jennifer added. “We have a great team here at John Grose and I hope all that attended will feel comfortable to visit us again – for next year’s quiz if not before!”
Nikki Brown, Senior Partnerships Officer for St Elizabeth Hospice said: “We are absolutely delighted that John Grose have once again supported St Elizabeth Hospice through their annual charity quizzes. The events were excellent! We really do rely on local people and local businesses to fundraise to keep our services free of charge for the local community. We couldn’t reach out to our 2000 patients a year without them. Thank you!”
Compering the quiz at Goddard Road, Peugeot Local Business Specialist Simon Long took the reins, asking a great range of questions and leading an evening that was great fun for all who attended.
