Businesses from Eccleston filled the Eccleston Working Men’s Institute this month to take part in the Home Truths first Business Pub quiz, raising an incredible £555 for our charity of the year, Rosemere Cancer Foundation.
Competing to win the quiz were more than 70 people from Eccleston, and after a few close rounds Roots Tennis came out on top to be crowned Eccleston’s Brainiest Business 2018.
Cathy Skidmore Corporate Fundraising Manager for Rosemere Cancer Foundation said: “Thanks to all at Home Truths for organising a very successful and fun quiz and thank you to everyone who attended. Congratulations to Roots Tennis for winning the title of Eccleston’s Brainiest Business!
“The fantastic £555 raised at the quiz will be used to fund equipment, patient’s comforts, services and research which are outside of the scope of NHS funding, but which make a big difference to cancer patients in Lancashire and South Cumbria.”
Home Truths regularly takes part in community campaigns and we wanted to create an event for local businesses to enjoy. As well as bringing the community together, the aim of the event was to raise money for Rosemere Cancer Foundation.
Home Truths Director, John Ascroft, said, “We are incredibly fortunate to have so many generous businesses within Eccleston and I want to thank everyone who supported the event, including the businesses who joined us and those who couldn’t make it but donated raffle prizes.
“A special thank you has to go to our host Kevin Langshaw who devised the quiz and made sure that all of our guests had fun on the night. I also want to thank Sisters Catering who provided the delicious food for the night. It was a fantastic evening and I am looking forward to seeing who takes the title next year.”
The Home Truths Eccleston Businesses Pub Quiz took place in the Eccleston Working Men’s Institute who generously donated the venue for the evening and the guests attending the quiz were asked for a minimum financial contribution per table which was part of the £555 raised.
Neil Entwistle, chairman from the Eccleston Working Men’s Institute said: “It was an incredible night with lots of laughter. We were honoured to host the event and help to support the Rosemere Cancer Foundation.”
