On Wednesday 26th April, over 200 of our employees, clients and candidates came together for our annual Charity Quiz evening, where we raised money for our chosen charity Donate4Refugees. The charity was launched by Amber Bauer, former Senior Procurement professional, in October last year with the mission of funding daily essentials for vulnerable children and adult refugees - such as food, clean water, clothes, shoes, first aid, personal safety and education.
Held at The Refinery, City Point bar near Moorgate, the event was a huge success with over £24,000 raised for the charity via raffle ticket sales and an auction. The prizes for the raffle and quiz were all kindly donated by an array of Investigo employees, clients and suppliers. The prize list was extensive including holidays to Portugal and France, Grandstand tickets for both the 2016 British Formula 1 Grand Prix and 2016 British Moto GP at Silverstone, tasting menu at Le Gavroche, Epsom Derby and Henley Festival tickets.
Both the auction and raffle were very well supported and the evening was a great success. Congratulations to the winners of the quiz, raffle and auction prizes. We hope you enjoyed your time and we look forward to seeing you next year.
Special thanks to Penny Haslam, award winning speaker, event host, media trainer and visibility coach, who hosted the event as well as to those who generously donated all the amazing prizes - we couldn’t have raised this fantastic amount without your support!
