Vectos Cardiff Charity Quiz exceeds fundraising target of £5k
We’re excited to announce that we exceeded the £5,000 target and our fundraising efforts last year for the Cardiff charity quiz event, raising more than £5,200!
More than 120 property industry guests gathered at our event on 13 October to test their knowledge, network with industry peers and most importantly raise money for two wonderful charities. Congratulations to the Savills 'Tricsy and the Modal Splits' team for winning this years' title.
Vectos Director Matt Thomas conceived the idea of this event last year to support charities in our local communities.
“We have been blown away by the level of enthusiasm and want to thank the companies who supported us as well as the individuals who donated on the night through the raffle – your generosity has been incredible,” he said.
“After two successful years we’re delighted to announce that we plan to deliver another event next year!
“Many guests supported us in both years and have already committed to supporting us again next year; without you all the event could not have been successful.
“I would also like to thank our fantastic quiz masters Ellen Axon and Cerian Phillips."
The two beneficiaries this year are bigmoose and KidsOut.
Founder of bigmoose Jeff Smith thanked Vectos for the donation and said it will fund a state-of-the-art coffee machine for its imminently opening coffee shop.
“We are finalising plans to open a coffee shop in Cardiff that will provide employment opportunities for local homeless people. We will provide training and certification, which will ultimately reintroduce them into society with skills that will help to keep them off the streets.
KidsOut CEO Gordon Moulds said he is grateful for Vectos' choice to support them.
"Our donation will provide much-needed fun days out and positive experiences to children living in refuges in and around Cardiff. Many children in refuge have suffered serious abuse and have fled the violence with their non-abusive parent. KidsOut works to bring fun and happiness into their lives at extremely difficult times,” he said.
"Thanks to the fantastic support of companies such as Vectos, we can continue to provide these opportunities and reach out to even more children in this situation."
