Generation Media supports Toy Trust with quiz night

Published on: 28th May 2019

Over 60 industry members from media owners such as Disney and Super Awesome competed to win the title of Pub Quiz Champion.

Generation Media has raised funds for the Toy Trust by hosting a ‘G’ themed fancy dress Quiz Night in London. ‘Agatha Quiztee’ – a team made up of Generation Media, Sky and Super Awesome – took home the winning prize while over £1000 (YTD) was raised for the toy industry’s charity through tickets and a raffle.

“Our annual fundraising event to support The Toy Trust was a great success, and we would like to thank the media partners for their continued support,” said Lauren Coombs, director of client services at Generation Media. “The night provided an opportunity to catch up with colleagues while raising money for worthy causes, a winning combination.”

Generation Media will continue fundraising in the run up to The Big Challenge Toy Trust event, in which team members will be participating in the 5km and 10km runs.

Graham Canning, Toy Trust committee chairman commented: “We are hugely grateful to Generation Media for its continued support of the Toy Trust, which it has done for many years. Its creative and proactive approach to fundraising is the lifeblood of the Toy Trust – where the toy industry comes together to carry out fundraising throughout the year. We are hugely grateful for this support and the difference the fundraising will ultimately make to deserving children’s lives through the work of the Toy Trust. Our thanks go to Generation Media for its fantastic support.”
