The ‘Not Quite Burns Night Pub Quiz’ was held in Glasgow on 22nd January, a few days before the birthday of Scotland’s national bard.

Guests including a number of SafeDeposits’ letting agent clients took part in a series of quiz rounds, as well as a raffle and spot games, with all proceeds raised from the night being donated to the Rock Trust, whose aim is to end youth homelessness in Scotland by ensuring that every young person has access to expert youth specific services to assist them to avoid, survive and move on from homelessness.

Mike Smith, head of SafeDeposits Scotland and quizmaster on the night, said: “This is the third quiz night we have organised and after a COVID imposed hiatus of two years we were delighted to bring back this night of fun and fundraising, all in aid of an important charity.

“We’re grateful to our clients, colleagues and other guests for their generosity, which saw us raise a record amount for one of our quiz nights. We also thank the businesses who helped make the night a success by donating a variety of fantastic prizes.”

Kate Dixon, partnerships lead at the Rock Trust, added: “This is an amazing amount raised by SafeDeposits Scotland. The efforts of the organisers and staff in making this such a successful event is a true reflection of their commitment to Rock Trust and our work. One in four people affected by homelessness in Scotland last year were aged 16-25 and the number is rising year on year. The support of our corporate partners like SafeDeposits Scotland is vital if we are to achieve our vision of ending youth homelessness.”
