A quiz night has pushed the Port of Ipswich’s fund-raising pot for St Elizabeth Hospice to £12,000.

The quiz, which raised £1,000, is among a host of fundraising activities staff at Associated British Ports (ABP) have completed for the hospice.

Earlier this year a team of 14 from ABP finished a 100 mile cycle ride, raising £2,500.

Paul Ager, ABP divisional port manager, said: “We are proud to be working with our customers and stakeholders to support the important work done by St Elizabeth Hospice in our community.

“Through social events like the quiz night, we encourage colleagues to take part in fun activities which also help to raise funds for worthwhile causes in our communities.

Next year ABP are taking part in Elmer’s Big Parade, which looks to raise hundreds of thousands for the hospice.
