Reigate Manor hosts another successful quiz night raising a further £2000 for local charity George and the Giant Pledge!
On Friday 9th February Reigate Manor hotel hosted a fantastic quiz and night to raise funds for local charity George and The Giant Pledge.
George Woodall is a very brave little boy who lives locally in Redhill. Just over year ago aged 4 George was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer and has undergone a years’ worth of intensive treatment. His parents set up George and the Giant Pledge at the beginning of his treatment with the aim to raise £1m for The Royal Marsden to go towards research specifically into childhood cancer. George and The Giant Pledge is the chosen charity of Reigate Manor and last Friday they raised an impressive £2000, this is on top of £1750 raised at their quiz and curry night last November and £3200 from the family fun day which took place at their sister hotel Hartsfield Manor last summer.
Giles Thomas, Group General Manager of the hotels said “We really enjoy getting involved in the local community and hosting our quiz nights. The ballroom came alive with 130 locals enjoying fish and chips and getting competitive over the questions all whilst generously helping us raise a fantastic amount for The Royal Marsden. It was really special to have George’s parents, Vicky and Woody both there and seeing them enjoy the evening and watching the money being raised. We also get a lot of support from local businesses who kindly donate raffle prizes, it’s a real community effort!”.
Vicky Woodall, George’s mum, later posted on their Facebook blog “Not only did we get to enjoy the evening but we were also all told before the night was out they’d managed to raise in excess of £2000! Thanks again to everyone that went and to the Reigate manor team who yet again put on another brilliant evening!”.
