It’s great to see national and local companies pull together to fundraise for worthy causes and even better when fun is had by all. This was certainly the case when Hamptons International recently organised a pub quiz at the Kings Head in Hursley and raised £1,366.87 for Cancer Research UK.

This sum was partly raised by an auction held within Hamptons and a raffle which was open externally, with prizes donated by a host of local companies including restaurants, hairdressers, independent shops and boutiques, interior designers, vineyards, a cookery school and leisure venues.

The evening was a lively event with five teams representing Hamptons International offices across the region enjoying a friendly rivalry.  Staff from offices across the region including Winchester, Salisbury, Canford Cliffs, Farnham, Haslemere, Liphook, Fleet and Alton took part.

Carley Bassett, Administrator in Winchester, a key organiser for the event, was delighted with the response to the initiative and said: “Special thanks must go to all the local companies who willingly donated a whole range of gifts, products and experiences to appeal to all. Massive thanks also to the Kings Head at Hursley who did a fantastic job at hosting this latest event.

“Our total charity fundraising this year as a region is £4,644.87 which represents a sterling effort by all concerned.”
