Bankstone staff hope to raise well over £400 for charity Children in Need following a quiz night and charity auction held on Friday 14th November. Each paid £1 to enter a 48-question quiz and a further 25p for each wrong answer. The winners qualify for an extra day’s paid leave in 2009. The auction included prizes as diverse as an iPod donated by a local recruitment firm, special guest tickets to a Huddersfield Giants Rugby League game, Maltese and Polish meals prepared by staff members, and a Bankstone director as your slave for the day. With £347.50 raised on the night, bidding continues for another week on many of the lots, so a record-breaking* £400 plus total is definitely on the cards.
*Last year’s inaugural Bankstone Children in Need fundraiser brought in £350.00.
