London – Infiniti’s VIP fleet had another special assignment on the roads of the capital last night – this time ensuring that the UK’s largest interactive sports quiz went off on time.
Star passengers including quizmaster Clive Tyldesley, Sir Trevor Brooking, David Seaman, Ade Adepitan MBE, Lizzie Yarnold MBE, Jeff Stelling and many more were chauffeured to the ultimate sporting battle of wits at The Brewery London. Altogether more than 500 VIPs, sports stars and sports fans took part in the quiz, part of a fund-raising spectacular in aid of the Bobby Moore Fund, which Infiniti supports as automotive partner.
Now in its 16th year, the Celebrity Sports Quiz generates large amounts of money for the charity every year, and this year was no exception with over £215,212 raised. All of the money will go to help the charity’s pioneering bowel cancer research programme.
Funds were boosted by a special auction of money-can’t-buy experiences that included a tour of the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Formula 1 factory in Milton Keynes, along with a chauffeured Infiniti for the day and an F1™ glove signed by four time World Champion Sebastian Vettel.
Steve Oliver, Infiniti Regional Director, commented: The quiz is a fun night out but the heart of the event is respect for one of England’s all-time great footballers and support for his legacy, through the Bobby Moore Fund, of seeking to rid the world of bowel cancer. The Fund does great work and Infiniti is very pleased to be able to support it.”
Founder of the Bobby Moore Fund, Stephanie Moore MBE, said: “The Celebrity Sports Quiz is our flagship event and the largest interactive sports quiz in the UK. We are delighted that Infiniti have supported the event as our official automotive partner and it was fantastic for our Celebrity guests to arrive in such style. Infiniti, and all of the supporters of the quiz, have made a real and direct impact on the bowel cancer research projects that we will be able to fund as a result of last night’s event.”
