MasterCard employees tackle Brain Raiders Quiz
MasterCard employees in Canary Wharf pitted
their wits against each other at the Brain Raiders fundraising quiz
event, held in aid of The Prince’s Trust.
MasterCard Worldwide became a Patron of The Prince’s Trust in
April, committing significant funding to support young people in
London and the South East through The Trust’s Enterprise Programme.
The quiz evening, which took place ahead of the long Jubilee
weekend, kicked off MasterCard’s employee engagement programme of
fundraising and volunteering activities for the charity.
Twelve teams battled it out, answering questions on a range
of topics including movies, music, pop culture and youth culture,
and raised an impressive £1,000 for The Prince's Trust. The winning
team on the evening was “Let’s Get Quizzical”, followed by
“Bakenecker’s Babes in second place and “Oy Oy Oy” in third
Also in attendance was Young Ambassador Jarred King, who was
helped by The Prince's Trust to set up his business My Tshirt
Flashes.com, who co-hosted the quiz. He took the opportunity to
share his experience with those at the event, reminding them that
every penny raised was going to help more young people just like
him to change their lives for the better.
Marion King, President of MasterCard UK & Ireland, said:
I passionately support the good work undertaken
by The Prince's Trust to promote financial inclusion. I am proud to
help them support young people to develop their entrepreneurial
spirit and achieve their potential. I was delighted with the
fantastic response we had to the quiz, which is just one of the
many ways in which our employees are getting involved with The
Trust and raising funds for this very worthwhile cause.
