Russell Roof Tiles’ annual Big Quiz has raised an impressive £6,500 for charity.
The roof tile manufacturer’s event was well-attended, with 44 teams of 4, including customers, staff and suppliers – roofers and architects from across the UK, battling it out at Burton Albion’s Pirelli Stadium to take this year’s champion position.
The crown went to law firm Geldards LLP, based in Derby, who were awarded with a trophy, £50 each and a bottle of wine. Second place went to Scottish firm, Alexander Steele Recruitment whilst a Russell Roof Tiles team comprising of Transport Manager, Stuart Ogden, Transport Planner, Tom Baron, Sales Executive, Rhodri Jones and Area Sales Manager, Michael Palmer, came in third.
More than £3,000 was raised via auction, with one attendee bidding a staggering £700 for a boxing glove signed by British sporting legend, Anthony Joshua. Raffle winners also took home prizes of spa vouchers and football stadium tour tickets.
Money raised went into the Russell Roof Tiles’ Community Fund, and benefits charities, such as Shropshire, Staffordshire, Cheshire Blood Bikes, Dumfries and Galloway Blood Bikes and Nith Inshore Rescue.
Andrew Hayward, Managing Director at Russell Roof Tiles said, “The second year of our Big Quiz event was a triumph. We would like to thank everyone who attended for their fantastic support. A special thank you also goes to Burton Albion Football Club for providing us with the fantastic Pirelli Suite to host the event.
“We are incredibly proud to be able to support our local charities and raise much-needed funds, which goes a long way in providing vital funds in the community.’’
