Amazing generosity at this year’s Charity Quiz

Friday 31st March saw our third annual charity quiz in aid of Catching Lives, a local charity providing support and assistance to the homeless and vulnerably housed within our community.

Building on the success of previous years, 2017’s event at The Westgate Hall saw 240 people across 24 teams vie to win the £150 prize money, champagne and chocolates.

For the third year in a row, accountants Kreston Reeves came out victorious, kindly donating their prize money directly back to Catching Lives!  An amazing gesture.

As previous years, a raffle was held with some spectacular prizes on offer, with prizes generously donated by the likes of Champneys Spa, Shepherd Neame Brewery, Morrisons Canterbury, The Cuban and their new sister company Canterbury Tails, The Marlowe Theatre, Blink Architecture, as well as a prize directly donated by international band, Coldplay!

Thanks as well go to partner Matt Hayes for his support and for arranging an amazing prize of a new iPad for the raffle, along with partner Mark Nolan and associate Lee Waters for generously donating personal prizes.

We are humbled by the support and encouragement we receive each year, and thanks to the immense generosity and kind-heartedness of those who attended, we are pleased to announce that this year’s event raised a staggering £3,100 for Catching Lives.  A round of applause to you all!
