Mayfair Capital’s Charity Quiz Evening raises GBP20,000 for Motor Neurone Disease Association
Property fund manager Mayfair Capital Investment Management’s annual Charity Quiz Evening raised GBP20,000 in support of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
The event, held on 22 November 2012 at The Lansdowne Club, W1, saw the property industry bid for items including a week’s holiday in a Turkish villa, a day behind the scenes with Channel 4 Racing and an action man tank driving experience.
Chris Broad, the former England international cricketer and patron of the Motor Neurone Disease Association, was the quiz master and Chris Mills, an auctioneer from CBRE, lent his skills to lead the auction. The majority of tables were taken by law firms, property firms and charities.
The Motor Neurone Disease Association was set up in 1979 to fund and promote global research into Motor Neurone Disease (MND) as well as providing support, guidance and advice for those affected by it. The mission of the charity is to help bring about an end to MND through medical research, but in the meantime it aims to ensure that everyone with MND receives the best care and the highest possible quality of life.
Stephen Musgrave (pictured), chairman of Mayfair Capital, says: “A wheelchair with specialist adaptations for a person living with MND costs between GBP5,000 and GBP6,000 and we are pleased to have raised enough money to buy three wheelchairs. We would like to thank our friends and business associates for their generosity in support of this worthy cause.”
This year’s event was Mayfair Capital’s sixth annual Charity Quiz Evening and a total of GBP70,000 has been raised over the years for variety of charities.
