Charity Quiz and
Live Auction night:
Thursday, October 4, 7.30pm

Cheltenham-based recruitment agency Reed are hosting a quiz night, open for all local businesses in the Gloucestershire area to attend. The quiz will be raising money for Ethiopiaid, part of the Reed Foundation and the team hope to raise in excess of 500 on the night.

The event will take place at 7.30pm on Thursday, October 4 at Copa, Regent Street, and with a number of teams already confirmed to attend, the evening promises to be a successful and fun-filled way to raise awareness of the charity. Team registration is open, at 10 a team, with a maximum team size of six.

Ethiopiaid is a charity set up by Sir Alec Reed over 25 years ago. Its primary focus is Healthcare, Poverty and Education. Through a number of different projects, it helps deliver training and educates key local members, to help them produce sustainable solutions to the problems they face. Each year, selected members of Reed employee base go out to assist in the delivery of these projects and develop new ways to move them forward. Accountancy Consultant Lizzie Harkness will be visiting this December, but first needs to raise 2,000. Fundraising has so far included bake sales, barbecues, poker nights, and the generosity of friends and family!

Business Manager, Katie James-Cartner says, Reed are very proud to be associated with the charity and this is a great way for us to raise awareness among our valued clients, whilst having fun!

Prizes so far include tickets to Dara OBriain at the Racecourse, evening meals out for two, and several luxury hampers from local Gloucestershire producers, but Reed are also looking for further contributions for auctions lots and would welcome any further donations from businesses that would like to get involved and be linked with the event.

For further information on the charity night call Lizzie Harkness on 01242 544100 or email Lizzie.Harkness@reedglobal.com
