The event also featured two engaging speakers, Macmillan's own Jon Newman who provided details of the work we do in supporting people with cancer as well as their families, and Steve Moore who spoke about his Guinness World record for the longest journey in a fire engine that raised more than £120,000 for charities including Macmillan.
Twelve teams competed in the quiz with every round sponsored by some of Sainsbury's external suppliers. They were also encouraged to ‘Bid For A Brain’, where suppliers could hire a member of the supermarket's estates department to join their team for the quiz. This alone raised £1,733, as well as providing much good humoured rivalry and embarrassment amongst Sainsbury's staff.
The evening was rounded off with a raffle featuring such prizes as a £250 Westfield shopping voucher and a supercar experience day for two, before a highly competitive auction for a signed picture of the highly competitive Stuart Broad brought a close to the event.
This great night wouldn't have been possible without Sainsbury's Danielle Rayner, who organised the event, as well as their suppliers whose generosity allowed all money raised to go directly to Macmillan.
