YMC Charity Quiz Night 2021
20 teams joined us at Steam Bar & Restaurant to battle it out for the title of 'IIL YMC Charity Quiz Champion 2021' and raise much needed funds for Barking Foodbank.
A grand total of £2,350 was raised from the event; ticket proceeds, a well-supported raffle and generous donations all contributed to this incredible amount.
Thank you to all who made this event possible: Steam Bar & Restaurant, the IIL Young Members' Committee, and last but by no means least, all who attended and supported the event so generously.
Obi Onyeabor from Barking Foodbank commented:
“A big thank you to the Insurance Institute of London team, members and everyone that donated during the YMC Quiz Night. The funds raised will go a long way to help us continue providing emergency food parcels to people in need in our community. On behalf of the trustees, volunteers, and our clients, we appreciate your generosity and thank you for supporting Barking Foodbank.”

Barking Foodbank was set up by the Hope Family Trust and The Trussell Trust in February 2012 to help tackle hunger in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham. In March 2020, just before the UK went into lockdown 1.0, a member of the IIL team (Nicci Greenacre) began volunteering at her local site in Chadwell Heath. Barking Foodbank is now a Charity Partner of the IIL and we are raising awareness and much needed funds through our wellbeing, CPD, social & networking programmes.

The proceeds from this event (after event costs) will be donated to Barking Foodbank (Registered Charity Number 1157921).
