This year SDL Surveying are on a mission to support as many different charities as we can – and what more deserving cause for March than Comic Relief! We decided to do a fundraising event- with the aim to get as many people as possible involved to raise money and have fun whilst doing it.
We came up with an idea, and on Thursday 14th March, we organised our very own Pub Quiz. Tickets were sold at £5 each and over 50 people took part (10 teams). We put on a few pub snacks, nibbles and drinks, whilst Rachel Griffiths was our amazing Quiz Master!
The prize for the winning team was a meal at the Verve Grill Bar at the Village Nottingham and the top raffle prize was a free day of holiday!
The evening was a great success! But it didn’t stop there…
On Friday 15th March, we asked everyone in the office to continue to show their support by wearing red! We also had a cake sale at our desks, where people brought in their own delicious baked goodies. We even sold slices of cooked pizza for the savoury lovers!
We were absolutely delighted and so proud that the total amount we managed to raise was £450, SDL Group then doubled this with the matched fundraising scheme. This will have definitely helped towards the staggering £63,938,072 that was raised in total.
We’d like to thank everybody so much for taking part by donating, baking and for anybody who got involved in the activity. Whether you told your best joke on Yammer or bought a slice of homemade cake, every little counts!
