Mayfair Capital held its 10th Annual Charity Quiz night on 17 November 2016 at the Lansdowne Club.
This year’s charity was very personal to Mayfair Capital, ‘Team Archie’ (www.teamarchie.org; Reg No. 1167671) which has been set up by one of the Directors James Lloyd and his family in memory of their son, Archie who tragically died aged 18 in 2015. The charity has been set up to reflect Archie, his ethos and his enthusiasm for life and to inspire and motivate young people to make the most of their talents. The charity will work with other charities to establish a series of programmes and awards. The first such award will be working alongside Youth Sports Trust (www.youthsporttrust.org).
Around 140 guests from the property world, business partners and friends enjoyed a challenging quiz, carefully devised by the CEO, James Thornton. The evening was skilfully compered by Gail Emms, former Badminton World Champion and Olympic Medallist and now Ambassador to Youth Sport Trust. In the end, the sought after silver cup was won by James Lloyd’s team the ‘Highbury hotshots’.
Chris Mills once again managed the charity auction, where there was plenty of bidding for a number of lots, which included a rowing experience at Henley with Olympic and Atlantic rower Guin Batten.
The evening was a huge success with more than £20,000 raised for Team Archie, this now brings Mayfair Capital’s total raised for various charities over the last 10 years to in excess of £200,000.
We would like to thank our guests for being so generous and for once again making the evening so entertaining.
