A quiz night organised by leading Hampshire-based disability charity Enham Trust and sponsored by several Andover businesses and business groups has raised over £2000 for the charity.
Held at the Andover Masonic Hall and sponsored by Langdowns DFK, Andover Mutual Business Group and the Andover branch of Santander, the night saw over 70 participants, including local business professionals, compete in a general knowledge quiz, take part in a raffle to win some fantastic prizes donated by local businesses, and learn more about the charity’s work.
“We’re delighted with the response we had for the quiz night,” comments Enham Trust’s Relationship Fundraiser Richard Pilbeam. “Not only did it raise funds and local awareness for the charity, but it also strengthened relationships within the local business community; helping us continue to support disabled people to live as independently as possible.”
Winners of the quiz were a team from Andover Women in Business; a local business networking group specifically for employed and self-employed women in the area.
“When Richard announced the Enham quiz at a recent AMBG meeting I thought it sounded like a good evening for a worthy cause,” explains Andover Women in Business member Susan Risdale. “We had a great evening, and were very pleased to win! We learned more about the wonderful developments coming to Enham Trust, and the benefits it will bring to many disabled people.”
Raising over £1100 on the night, the Andover Branch of Santander kindly agreed to match all donations made, increasing the total to an impressive £2200 and making a valued contribution to Enham Trust’s vital cause; supporting over 7,500 disabled and disadvantaged people across the country to live lives of choice, control, and independence.
