The evening was hosted and organised by Integrated Health Projects (IHP), the alliance between Vinci Construction UK and Sir Robert McAlpine and the Trust's main contractor for its transformation projects, raising funds for the UHDC's robotic tilt table appeal as a legacy.
Teams came from across the Bournemouth area and included subcontractors Stephenson, AT Jones, W Portsmouth, and Norstead. IHP and the hospital had multiple teams supporting the event as well as from Royal Bournemouth Hospital neighbours, Amiri and JP Morgan.
The event was not a typical quiz night with a construction element featuring a 'tower' building challenge, with joint winners for the tallest Jenga challenge.
The overall winners were the UHD team named 'Stroke of Genius'.
It was great to be able to get together with so many of our team, professional colleagues, and hospital staff for an enjoyable evening. We were delighted that the evening raised over £2,500 for our nominated charity and the project we are currently supporting – the UHD Charity and its robotic tilt table appeal. We are so grateful to all those who contributed by taking tables, buying raffle tickets and supporting this wonderful cause.

Commenting on the evening, Hayley Harris UHD Charity corporate fundraiser, added:
"Our thanks go to the IHP team for organising this fantastic event and for all the individuals and companies that supported us on the night.
"This is an incredible amount of money, and will really help us in our efforts to raise funds to buy two robotic tilt tables so we can deliver safe and effective early rehabilitation to patients."
