A short write up on our techie table quiz hosted by Workday on Mon Nov 25th.
❤️ On behalf of Declan, Mick, Dale, Naomi and Lais, we want to thank you for supporting our table quiz last night. We raised €885.60 for the Dublin Simon Community! It was a great turn out, given I forgot to send a reminder email!
