Gullands puts on thinking caps to raise £1,250 for the Heart of Kent Hospice12.09.2014
Gullands hosted a corporate quiz night on Monday 16 June at Maidstone United’s Gallagher Stadium and raised £1,250 for the Heart of Kent Hospice.
Nine teams from the local business community, including Barclays, BTF Partnership, Crowe Clark Whitehill, Invicta IFA, DSH, NatWest and Reeves, put forward their best and brightest and joined Gullands to test their general knowledge and raise money for the Heart of Kent Hospice.
The quiz, which was compered by Gullands’ Chairman, Blair Gulland, included 10 rounds of challenging questions from a broad range of topics including the history of Maidstone, fruit and flowers, flying machines and even the weather. Winning their own quiz, the Gullands team allowed Crowe Clark Whitehill, who came a close second, to be crowned the winners, with Invicta IFA winning the wooden spoon award.
Following the quiz, there was a fundraising raffle with a fantastic array of prizes generously donated by several local businesses including The Art Lounge Café, David Lloyd, Eden’s, Kabanos Polish Shop, Leeds Castle, Lush, Maidstone Leisure Centre, Mumma G’s Café, Norish Cold Stores, Robins & Day, The Sherwood Oak, The Swan and Urban.
Blair Gulland, Chairman of Gullands Solicitors, commented: “On behalf of Gullands, I would like to thank all of the teams who were able to join us for a wonderful evening. It is always an enjoyable event and we are delighted to have raised £1,250 for the Heart of Kent Hospice. We are also grateful to those who kindly donated prizes for the raffle.”
The Heart of Kent Hospice provides expert care for people who are facing the challenge of a life limiting illness. Its specialist teams care for nearly 1,000 patients and their families a year free of charge in their own home, in the community or at the Hospice.
Moira Mitchell, Business Partnerships Manager at the Heart of Kent Hospice, commented: “We are really grateful to Gullands Solicitors for their support and this donation will make a real difference in helping us continue to care for patients and their families.”
