30th November 2022

Guests, sponsors, and hosts come together in record-breaking Charity Quiz

Our annual Charity Quiz was back with a bang this year.

Our annual Charity Quiz was back with a bang this year, having been on an enforced break in recent years due to the coronavirus pandemic.

We were delighted and honoured at the opportunity to host on the 24th of November 2022 in aid of Restless Development once more, and thanks to all the attendees, it was a huge success.

Restless Development has been championing young people as leaders of development for over 30 years in communities across Africa and Asia. Over that time they have supported thousands of young volunteers with training, tools and access to networks.

Thanks to their hard work, as well as the fundraising of our esteemed guests, this year’s Charity Quiz at the Joiner on Worship was a record-breaking one.

The event entered our history books, with over £40k raised by our 100 plus attendees - double the amount of any previous Charity Quiz. And we were privileged to have hosted guests that included the likes of Evolve, FluidOne, and Juniper.

We’d also like to thank our host Mark Durden-Smith (best known for presenting on ITV, Sky 1, and Channel 5) for superbly playing his part in making it a memorable event. And after the quiz, the charity auction quickly began.

With prizes including F1 tickets, tickets to the autumn internationals, a spa break, a brewery tour, lunch with Sir Charles Dunstone and Tristia Harrison, and much more on the line, our motivated guests had plenty to bid on.

And none of the success on the night would’ve been possible without our sponsors, so we’d like to say a big thank you to CityFibre, Acronis, ITS, Virgin, and Comms Dealer for their selfless support.

Speaking about the event, Tom O’Hagan, Virtual1 CEO said:

‘The work we do with Restless means a great deal to me. I’m absolutely thrilled that we’ve managed to raise a large amount of money that will go towards bettering the lives of young people’
