Other organisations taking part in the event, which was being staged by Pure for the seventh time, included Ipswich Hospital, Barclays, Haven Power and Caring Homes.

Scott Woodrow, senior accountancy recruitment consultant and office manager at the Pure office in Ipswich, said: “We’re delighted to have been able to raise such a wonderful amount for Suffolk Mind.

“I’d like to thank all the businesses that attended, donated and contributed generously to the event and we look forward to seeing them again next year! Pure has more fundraising events planned, so this is just the beginning of an exciting year of charity support.”

Anna Hughes, chief executive of Suffolk Mind, said: “We would like to thank Pure Resourcing Solutions for choosing Suffolk Mind as its charity for its annual quiz this year.

“As well as our other services, the quiz gave us an opportunity to introduce our Workplace Wellbeing initiative. The initiative offers training and advice to businesses to help them support employees with mental health issues.”
