Thursday 16 November saw the return of Rennie Grove Hospice Care’s popular Question of Sport dinner to Wycombe Wanderers Football Club for a second year. 130 guests came together for an evening of friendly rivalry and competition in a bid to win the Question of Sport trophy and raise vital funds for the charity.
Guests enjoyed a drinks reception, three-course meal with wine, raffle and auction as well as a fully interactive sports quiz provided and hosted by Neil Townend from Moonlighting Group.
Ben Brocklesby from headline sponsor Origin Global said; “Origin is a proud partner of Rennie Grove. Recently we took part in the second Buckinghamshire Question of Sport Quiz dinner and had a marvellous evening of fun, laughter and most importantly raising money for a wonderful local charity. We look forward to taking part in next year’s event.”
Chris Newell from Red/Green game sponsors Quantama said; “It was a really fun night, well organised and we were proud to be sponsors. We’re absolutely delighted to have won and are already looking forward to 2018. I would absolutely encourage local businesses to take a table as it’s a win win. A fantastic night of entertainment supporting a vital local charity that really makes a difference to people’s lives in the local area”
The evening raised nearly £15,000 for Rennie Grove Hospice Care, enough to fund a Hospice at Home nurse for five months. Providing responsive 24/7 care and support to local adults and children means that we can give patients the choice to be cared for in their own homes, surrounded by their families and friends.
Claire Redrup, event organiser and Corporate Partnerships Manager at Rennie Grove said; “It was a fabulous evening and it’s always great to see a bit of friendly rivalry between corporates and colleagues. The atmosphere was brilliant and there were some excellent prizes up for grabs in the raffle and auction. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and they raised a great amount of money for a good cause. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the other sponsors of the evening; Optima, Windowfilm Company and Luker Rowe. Thank you to everyone who supported this year’s event.”
The Question of Sport charity dinner also takes place at Sopwell House, St Albans on Thursday 8 March 2018. For more information visit www.renniegrove.org/questionofsport
