QUIZ NIGHT (ON LINE) 2021

THE QUIZ 2021

A number of quizzers from across North Wales gathered around their laptops last month to test themselves as part of the North Wales Business Club (NWBC) Virtual Corporate Quiz in aid of St David’s Hospice.

The quiz, once again hosted by former Welsh international rugby star Rupert Moon, is now in its sixth year. Usually taking place in Venue Cymru, the quiz saw contestants participate from the comfort of their own home.

Barclays were unable to produce the Quiz this year. However, they very kindly sourced £6540 of matched funding which was very much appreciated by the charity.

Sophie Morris, Managing Director of Worldspan, a Member of the North Wales Business Club Committee, once again produced a fantastic virtual quiz utilising the services of her team at Worldspan to ensure the technical side of things was well managed.

Jeremy Salisbury, NWBC Chairman said:

“North Wales Business Club are once again delighted to be able to support the fantastic work of St David’s Hospice and to involve our members in such an enjoyable event that keeps on giving year after year.

“We would like to thank all of our sponsors and particularly Barclays Bank for their support in achieving such a fantastic sum for the Hospice.”

The event was a resounding success raising £13,080 for palliative care in North West Wales. Community fundraisers make up 90% of the £5 million annual running cost of St David’s Hospice, with just 9% of that figure coming from the Welsh Government and Local Health Board.

Tim Virgo, Corporate Banking Director for Barclays said:-

“We are delighted with the amount raised for St David’s Hospice and would like to thank everyone who supported us to make this happen. Alongside our Shared Growth Ambition, Barclays has a fantastic Colleague Community Programme that encourages employees to get involved in the causes we care about. It’s about giving back our skills, time and energy to support our local communities, especially in these difficult times – so we’re thrilled to have raised this money.”

St David’s Hospice Conwy Area Fundraiser, James Wilde said:

“We are so grateful to everyone for supporting the Virtual Quiz. I took part in the event myself and really enjoyed how varied the rounds were and how much fun the evening was.

“Many thanks to all at the North Wales Business Club for their consistent support and to Barclays for their generous donation.

“I’d also like to thank Rupert Moon for his fantastic hosting skills to keep the event running smoothly, Worldspan for doing a superb job with the technical side of things, the event sponsors and to everyone who took part and bought raffle tickets.”

Congratulations to Colin Wickens, Private Client Investment Manager of Dragon Investment Managers, who won the quiz with 69 points.
