The event took place on 24 January at the University and Literary Club, with over 100 clients, staff and construction professionals in attendance. Guests gathered to sample real ales from breweries in Bristol and take part in a pub style quiz based on the last 60 years of Bristol history.
The evening raised £1,000 for the Willow Trust, which offers freedom for the disabled by providing boat trips and days out for disabled and seriously ill children and adults on the Sharpness Canal.
Chris Rogers, a regional director based at the Bristol office and the event organiser, said: "Our annual real ale event is now in its fourth year and has once again proved to be very popular. We aim to offer something different, and focus on a fresh theme each year. It made sense to organise a Bristol themed event, having recently celebrated our Diamond Jubilee here. The night was a great opportunity for us all to get together for a fun social event and at the same time help a local charity which we believe is very worthy of support."
Faithful+Gould's annual charity quiz nights have become a great success and are now a recognised event in the Bristol construction industry social calendar. A total of over £3,000 has been raised in recent years for charities such as St Peter’s Hospice, the Babe Appeal and the Disasters Emergency Committee following the Asian tsunami disaster.
