Annual charity quiz raises thousands for Seddon’s charities of choice

The 17th annual Seddon charity quiz took place on Thursday 23rd March, raising more than £3,500 for the builder and developer’s charities of choice for 2017.

Money raised at the event at Little Hulton Conservative Club will be split between The Christie Charity; Bolton, Bury and St Ann’s hospices; and Papyrus, which works to prevent young suicide in the UK.

The event was attended by more than 150 people, including Seddon employees, subcontractors and suppliers from the local area and beyond.

Winning team, Dream Chasers, was captained by Rebecca Kendal, project administrator in the north west construction team. 

Seddon recently announced a two-year partnership with The Christie Charity, naming the Manchester service as its Charity of Choice.

Vanessa Barlow, Charity Champion at Seddon said ‘The event was a fabulous success raising a massive amount for our chosen charities. Everybody was extremely generous, and we are so grateful for the support.’

During the partnership Seddon staff will raise much-needed funds for a new national high energy proton beam therapy service – one of only two in the UK.

Ongoing support for Bolton, Bury and St Ann’s hospices and Papyrus comes from Seddon’s commitment to supporting a variety of charities with which its employees have direct involvement.

Jen Bailey, fundraising coordinator at The Christie charity, said: "We welcome the ongoing support Seddon is giving The Christie charity. The money raised at events such as their annual quiz is vital for helping cancer patients and their families throughout the north west.”
