Previous events – Nottingham quiz night
The Learn Appeal quiz night run by Walkgrove and attended by local e-learning businesses, Mind-Click and Delta-Net was a huge success, raising £670.10 (who knows where the 10p came from).
Nearly eighty people turned out including Walkgrove’s corporate lawyers, Geldards, who also donated a raffle prize. Local businesses were very generous with donations – notably Boots and Thorntons – and the raffle prizes were so good, that we raised a whopping £200 in ticket sales. Letters thanking all raffle prize donors will go out next week. The Approach provided the venue free of charge and laid on lovely food. The ‘Ds’ from Mind-Click won the first prize of £80 cash and promptly donated the winnings back to the charity on behalf of Mind-Click – so a very big thank you to them.
