Right To Play UK’s Sports Quiz 2023 raises nearly £260K
Right To Play UK’s seventh annual Sports Quiz took place at the Intercontinental Park Lane in London on Thursday, 23 November and raised nearly £260,000 with pledges and donations still coming in!
This year's special event was once again sponsored by our long-time partner PokerStars, a Flutter international brand, and saw teams representing many of London’s top private equity and finance firms, competing on the night for the Sports Quiz trophy.
Huge congratulations go to Advent International – our 2023 Sports Quiz Winners! As ever, the competition in the room was fierce, with plenty of quizzing, bidding and winning – and a great reminder of the power of play.
Right To Play UK’s 2023 Sports Quiz entertainment was provided by our quizmaster and host John Inverdale. Chemmy Alcott, Olympic Skier and Right To Play UK Board Member led a thrilling live auction and sporting heroes including John Barnes, Chris Kirkland, Jess Eddie, Grace Prendergast and Sander Westerveld attended the event with 300 guests.
“By embracing the power of play, we empower children to overcome adversity, we help children overcome trauma and discrimination, get back to learning, and build life and leadership skills. We’re so grateful to everyone who supported this year’s event, your belief in the transformative force of play fuels our mission to create brighter futures for over 2.7 million children each year. We look forward to welcoming many of you back for next year's event!” said Gillian McMahon, Executive Director of Right To Play UK.
A huge thank you to the competing teams, our sponsor PokerStars, our volunteer Sports Quiz Committee and our partners Liverpool FC Foundation for helping to bring the benefits of play-based learning and activities to millions of children – and protect, educate and empower vulnerable children using the power of play.
