Neil Lennon along with other celebrities help raise an eye-watering amount for charity as stars descend on Glasgow.
More than 500 top-tier guests from across the business world came together at the Glasgow Hilton, in the city centre, to enjoy the Brain Game quiz on Thursday, September 29.
The evening saw the likes of former Celtic manager, Neil Lennon, Superscoreboard and Sky Sports reporter, Gordon Duncan, celebrity chef Tony Singh MBE and radio DJ’s Garry Spence and David Farrell where in total just over £195,000 was raised.
The popular event was hosted by award-winning radio host and TV personality David Farrell for the first time, keeping guests entertained throughout the evening
Competition was fierce on the night, but it was the team from Nurture One – providers of therapeutic living and learning environments to support children, young people and families - who triumphed and took to the stage to accept the coveted trophy.
A host of companies in Glasgow that took part included Itison, United Airlines, AG Barr, KPMG, Tigerbond, Cala Homes (West), Loch Lomond Group, McLaughlin & Harvey, Keir Construction, Livingston James and Cazenove Capital, all helping raise those vital funds needed to keep Marie Curie caring and supporting terminally ill people and their loved ones.
Catherine Maclean, special events manager at Marie Curie, said: “The Glasgow Brain Game is a huge event in our calendar and is such a significant night for the charity and the work we carry out in the city.
"We have raised a record amount this year which is absolutely fantastic. The support from Glasgow’s business world was overwhelming and the competition in the room on the night was truly electric.
“A huge congratulations to the team from Nurture One in coming out on top and being crowned Glasgow’s brainiest business.
"This annual event is very well established now in the city, and we have businesses coming out to show their support and compete for the trophy year after year which is brilliant to see."
A special round from Glasgow’s brainiest kids Rucha Chandorkar, 13, and brother Akhilesh, 18, dubbed the city’s brightest kids in the city also took place across the evening.
And a silent and live auction also took place, as well as a raffle sponsored by United Airlines, to win two return business class flights to New York.
Catherine went on to add how vital nights like these were for the charity.
She said: "Marie Curie’s Glasgow Hospice needs just over £10,000 per day to run and the Glasgow Brain Game contributes to help to raise those vital funds.
"Events like the Glasgow Brain Game ensure we can continue to provide these important services to people who need it the most so a massive thank you to everyone who came along.”
