On 16 June 2011, the Viet Celts and Duracelts quiz teams joined up with other sporting clubs such as the Hanoi Dragons rugby club in the Vietnam Swans inspired Battle of the Codes trivia night to raise money for the Swim Vietnam charity which teaches Vietnamese kids how to swim.
The night was held in Jaspas, Hanoi Towers. The Swans raise money every year for this worthy charity. Kieran Tierney and Sarah Morgan organised the Viet Celts and Duracelts teams for the event.
