Pub quiz a huge success
Thank you to the teams who took part in our charity pub quiz - the event raised £1,600 for Computer Aid International - and saw us crash through our original target of £10,000... with five months still to go!
Thank you also to CNET Networks UK who supplied five 20Gb iPods as prizes for the winning team. And of course the bar staff and the manager at De Hems, Soho - a wonderful pub who gave us their whole upstairs bar for free for the evening.
The coveted iPods went home with the team from Brands2Life who narrowly beat the teams from Octane, ZDNET and silicon.com - with little more than a point seperating the teams. Other teams taking part on the night included (in no particular order) the lovely people from Berkeley PR, Fishburn Hedges, IT PR, Octopus, Hill & Knowlton and the team from GCI UK. Thanks again to everybody who made the evening such a success.
Everybody seemed to have a great night - with plenty of drink flowing - and once the serious business of the quiz was out of the way the evening provided an excellent opportunity for networking and mingling.
Now we're just wondering what event we could organise to trump this...? Suggestions please...
