Beaufort Financial quiz delivers boost for Ark

They are great Our Partner supporters of Ark Cancer Centre Charity – and now the team at Beaufort Financial have rounded off their 2018 fundraising for Ark Cancer Centre Charity with a successful quiz night.

The Tea Bar in London Street, Basingstoke, was the venue for the latest fundraiser, and 10 teams from various local businesses took part.

It was a close-fought contest but the team from LMW chartered accountants and business advisers won the celebratory fizz – and it was a great result for the charity as £2,000 was raised at the event. 

Once again, Beaufort Financial director Mark Dolby was the quizmaster supreme, and was ably supported by colleagues from the Beaufort Financial team.

The festive event rounds off another great year of fundraising by the Beaufort Financial team for Ark – one that has seen members of the team abseil down the Emirates Spinnaker Tower and also take part in the Arkriders Basingstoke to Bournemouth ride.  

Mark said: “Thanks to all the teams who came along to support Beaufort’s latest fundraising event for Ark, which has been our Charity of the Year for the last three years.

“Members of the Beaufort team have had fun and have enjoyed getting involved in several Ark-related events since 2015. We are delighted to have made a difference to the charity's £5million appeal that will help to fund the NHS cancer treatment centre at Basingstoke hospital, and we look forward to raising further funds, and awareness, in 2019."

Mark, who also flew the flag for Ark in the Basingstoke Half-Marathon, is the driving force behind the Arkriders Twin Towns Tour 2019, which will see more than 25 riders cycling from Basingstoke to Cologne from July 17-22.

Mark Jones, director of fundraising and communications at Ark Cancer Centre Charity, thanked Mark and the Beaufort Financial team for their great support, as well as all those who came along to the quiz and donated prizes for the raffle. He was also delighted to tell the audience that the charity has just passed the £2m milestone on its fundraising journey towards the £5m target.

He said: “Ark is proud to have such great support from the Beaufort Financial team – they have really gone the extra mile to support Ark and the cancer treatment centre project, and they are one of the charity's longest-standing business supporters. They have really made a big difference, and we are delighted to have their ongoing support into 2019.”
