CIOB/CIAT quiz raises thousands for charity.
The CIOB Novus Bristol Hub raised nearly £5,000 from its Mental Health Masterminds Charity Pub Quiz, which was held in collaboration with CIAT aspirATion Wessex.
The event, held during Mental Health Awareness Week in May, set out to raise funds for the charity Mates in Mind, which increases awareness and improves conditions for those in the construction industry who are struggling with mental health issues.
The quiz evening, which took place at The Drawbridge in Bristol, was attended by 125 participating guests and was successful in focusing the attention of local construction industry professionals, contractors and operatives on the cause.
A total of £4,813.72 was raised for Mates in Mind, which includes like-for-like fund-matching generously pledged by the Mace Foundation.
Daniel Samson MCIOB, who helped to organise the evening, was pleased with the success of the event, which also featured a charity auction and raffle.
“For me the organisation and delivery of this event has been a success in both the fundraising achieved for such a fantastic cause, and in the demonstration of teamwork and collaboration between two organisations,” he said.
