Aimee Looker, marketing executive at VoIP Unlimited will be taking on this year’s London Marathon – one of the great British sporting events – to raise money for HeadSmart; a campaign launched by the company’s charity of the year The Brain Tumour Charity.
VoIP Unlimited has pledged to raise at least £10,000 in funds for The Brain Tumour Charity by November 2015 in aid of this HeadSmart campaign, which aims to raise the awareness of brain tumour symptoms in children and young people.
Combining elite athletics, mass participation and record-breaking fundraising in one race, The London Marathon is the ideal event to help raise these funds. The course is a gruelling 26 miles 385 yards long, passing through the streets of London from Blackheath to the famous finish line at The Mall and the training for this is going well.
Aimee is hoping to raise a total of £2,500 in the run up to this event; a charity pub quiz is perfect for this. Taking place on Monday March 23, Steve Moody will kick off the general knowledge quiz at 7pm. Contestants will dine on fish and chips or vegetable curry while they tackle the trivia, which will comprise six rounds of questions including a picture and bonus round.
Mark Pillow, managing director of VoIP Unlimited, said: “VoIP Unlimited is determined to help HeadSmart further reduce the diagnosis time for children with brain tumours. The quiz nights at Patrick’s are always popular, so we’re hoping for a good show of support at this event. Good luck to all the teams!”
Patrick Michael, owner of Patrick’s Restaurant, Bar and Event Catering, said: “As it is important to us to support local businesses and charities wherever possible, we are pleased to host VoIP Unlimited’s charity pub quiz. The team at Patrick’s are looking forward to working with the company to hopefully raise significant funds for the HeadSmart charity.”
Tickets for the quiz including food are priced at £10 per person.
