Recruitment firm's quiz night raises thousands for charity

Cheltenham-based Truly Tailored Recruitment hosted a fundraising quiz on February 7, to assist local charity Hope for Tomorrow with their #KeepTheWheelsTurning campaign.

The highly-successful event filled Brickhampton Golf Club to the brim, with over 100 businesses taking part in the quiz.

Hundreds of raffle tickets were sold throughout the evening, with prizes being donated by generous local businesses. Steve Mitchell, founder of Festoon Events, donated his time by keeping the guests entertained.

Hope for Tomorrow are a Tetbury-based charity, supplying Mobile Cancer Care Units (MCCUs) to bring cancer care closer to patients' homes.

Truly Tailored Recruitment have been involved with this charity for many years, and wanted to find a way to not only give back but, more importantly, to spread the word about the great cause.

The evening raised more than £2,300 for the charity, generating much-needed funds for its current appeal which aims to raise £25,000 by the end of March. The money raised will 'keep the wheels turning' of one of their MCCUs for 126 days.

During the event, eight volunteers, including Truly Tailored Recruitment's managing director Abi Howell, signed up to either wing walk or sky dive in the forthcoming months to continue to fundraise for Hope for Tomorrow.
