Quizzers raise thousands for Molly Ollys

Nov 4, 2022 | News


Kind-hearted quizzers raised more than £7,700 for us at Molly Ollys when they donned their thinking caps at an event in Birmingham.

Following the success of their inaugural event, property and construction consultancy, Ridge Birmingham have now pledged to make the charity quiz night an annual fundraiser. Twenty-two teams gathered at the city’s Old Library in Digbeth on October 12th, to compete for a coveted engraved glass award, which was eventually won by Tilbury Douglas Engineering.

A spokesperson for the team said: “Tilbury Douglas Engineering – AKA Quizzy Rascal – are extremely proud to have been part of the Ridge and Partners Birmingham Big Quiz in support of such a great charity. The whole evening was just fantastic, topped off by helping to raise over £7,700 which was just superb! We look forward to defending our title next year!”

Sporting memorabilia – including a Tyson Fury boxing glove – a golf day for four, HDV TV and wine hamper were among the lots being bid on in a charity auction on the night.


Emily Bird, of Ridge Birmingham, said: “Molly Ollys is a fantastic charity which helps make a difference to children and their families facing unimaginable health challenges. Nick Keaney, a partner from Ridge, became associated with the charity in 2016 and now, Ridge often attends their fundraising golf events and annual balls.”

She added: “We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who attended, everyone who made a donation, even if they were unable to attend, and to everyone who donated auction prizes. Donations, attendance, and simply being able to raise awareness of Molly Ollys really helps a local charity with the incredible work that they do.”


Rachel from Molly Ollys said: “This was a great night, well organised and good fun. The team at Ridge Birmingham have completely taken onboard the importance of the help Molly Ollys provides to families and have worked hard to support and raise much-needed funds. Thank you so much to everyone involved.”

Every donation, whatever size, helps a seriously unwell child


Current data suggests that 12 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every day, and that 1,900 children under the age of 14 in the UK are diagnosed each year.

More children are diagnosed with a range of other, often rare, conditions and illnesses that are also life-threatening.

Molly Ollys is committed to helping as many of these children and their families as possible, and works hard to raise the necessary funds to be able to help those who contact us.
