Sports quiz raises nearly £50,000 for charity
Last week colleagues from our Leeds office attended the KidsOut Question of Sport quiz at The Stadium of Light.
The event raised nearly £50,000 for the charity, which will help disadvantaged children in and around the North East. It was an evening of entertainment, networking and friendly competition, finishing with our construction, CDR and RDU colleagues being crowned overall quiz champions.
Each year more than 20,000 children flee domestic abuse to seek sanctuary in refuge. Typically leaving home with only the clothes on their back, these children have experienced physical, emotional, and even sexual abuse and arrive at refuge with nothing. In collaboration with Women’s Aid, partner charities and corporate supporters, KidsOut works to remind these children and thousands of others living with disadvantages what it is like to be children and just have fun.
