The RVT Virtual Charity Quiz for Cancer Research UK
The RVT team put their thinking caps on for the latest fundraising event.
24th September 2020
On 17th September the RVT team took part in a virtual charity quiz to raise money for Cancer Research UK. September is national awareness month for blood, prostate and ovarian cancer, amongst others; all cancers that can be developed through past exposure to carcinogenic substances at work. Therefore, this is a cause close RVT’s heart.
Whilst donating to aid cancer research is hugely important at any time, with the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, it is vital. Cancer Research UK has had to cut £44 million from their research, so donations of all sizes will make a real difference.
At the virtual quiz, RVT team members enjoyed 5 rounds of eight questions, including General Knowledge, Guess the Logo and Dingbats. Although it was a close call, the winners were announced as Carol Telling and Michelle Forde from our amazing business development team. Carol and Michelle joined forces – team name “The Kool Kats” – and won with an impressive 30 points!
Fundraising is a huge part of RVT’s culture; we believe that we can only deliver excellence to our customers if our own team is happy in their working environment. Therefore, we aim to follow 6 core company values:
In an example of RVT showing exceptional care for others, a target was set for £100 to be raised across the company. However, the team’s generosity has seen us raise a total of £353.00 for Cancer Research UK, more than tripling our original target!
A huge thank you for everyone who got involved with and supported the quiz.
