Virtual1 charity quiz night raises £23k

Virtual1's third annual Charity Quiz night held in support Restless Development raised £23k following a stellar run of sponsorships, ticket sales and auction takings.

Over 100 partner guests attended the event hosted by quizmaster comedian Rufus Hound at the Forge near Bank including sponsors Juniper Networks, TalkTalk, Virgin Media Business and Comms Dealer.

Virtual1 CEO Tom O’Hagan stated: “The work we do with Restless means a great deal to us. Hosting the charity quiz is a highlight for the business. It’s a great night dedicated to raising as much money as we can for this special organisation."

All funds will go towards empowering young people across the world who might otherwise be caught in a spiral of unemployment, poverty, lack of education and poor access to health services.

“Restless Development has been championing young people as leaders of development for over 30 years in communities across Africa and Asia," said Dominic Smith, Restless Development.

"Over that time they have supported thousands of young volunteers with training, tools and access to networks. Whether responding to earthquakes or building long term HIV prevention in schools, young people have proven to be an unstoppable force for long lasting, positive change.”
