For the third time in 2020, The BIG Sodexo Quiz returned from the crypt last Thursday (29 October) to raise some much-needed funds for Stop Hunger and its charity partners.
Over 250 of your Sodexo colleagues took part in the online quiz, and with your support, the Halloween spooktacular raised more than £1,100 on the night – a hauntingly good amount that will go to support those most in need.
The quiz originally started life on the Corporate Services’ Diageo contract and was meant to be a one-off event. Since the first quiz, the virtual event has grown into a region-wide activity that has been joined by special Sodexo and celebrity guests alike. In total, the three quizzes have raised more than £6,000!

On Thursday, Sodexo ambassador Matt Dawson was joined by regular quizmaster and star of the Chris Moyle’s show, Rob DJ, with a ghoulish guest appearance from Julie Ennis, CEO Corporate Services UK & Ireland, who shone a spotlight on the importance of the Foundation’s activities.
Stop Hunger Charity Champion, Michelle Hukin, also joined the fun to tell quiz-goers more about the Foundation’s recent £5,000 donation to Leeds based charity St George’s Crypt, demonstrating where your support for Stop Hunger is truly making a difference to local communities.
Those taking part in the quiz were competing against their colleagues to win four awards. We can reveal your quiz winners are:
