Quiz lovers came together earlier this month to test their general knowledge and raise nearly £2500 for the robotic tilting table appeal, one of University Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity’s (UHDC) main fundraising projects.
The evening was hosted and organised by the Trust’s main contractor for its transformation projects, Integrated Health Projects (IHP), the alliance between Vinci Construction UK and Sir Robert McAlpine, raising funds for the UHDC’s robotic tilting table appeal as a legacy.
Teams came from across the Bournemouth area and included subcontractors Stephenson, AT Jones, W Portsmouth, and Norstead. IHP and the hospital had multiple teams supporting the event as well as from Royal Bournemouth Hospital neighbours, Amiri and JP Morgan.
The event was not a typical quiz night with a construction element featuring a ‘tower’ building challenge, with joint winners for the tallest Jenga challenge..
The overall winners were the UHD team named ‘Stroke of Genius’ who received winners certificates, and a courtesy bottle of wine each.
IHP Project Director, Bruce Preston, said:
“It was great to be able to get together with so many of our team, professional colleagues, and hospital staff for an enjoyable evening.
“We were delighted that the evening raised over £2500 for our nominated charity and the project we are currently supporting – the UHD Charity and its robotic tilt table appeal.
“We are so grateful to all those who contributed by taking tables, buying raffle tickets and supporting this wonderful cause.”
