WIT electronic engineering students recently ran their annual table quiz in the Dome Bar, to raise funds for the Solas Cancer Support Centre, Waterford
It was a great night with 24 quiz teams comprising of WIT students, WIT staff and the wider community. Everyone's positivity and drive was instrumental into making the Quiz into a vibrant WIT Community event.
This year and staff from WIT’s Student Life & Learning (SLL) office supported the WIT electronic engineering students in their fourth year of organising such an event. The Solas Cancer Support Centre provides vital support services to cancer patients, their families and carers and is totally reliant on income raised through fundraising.
A Busy Dome Bar!
A total of €1000.64 was raised and this was presented to Ann Marie Power, fundraising co-ordinator, at the Solas Cancer Support Centre on the 27th of March 2017.
