Northfields hosted a quiz with proceeds going to The Log Cabin which undertakes the incredibly valuable work of providing 250 children with disabilities and special needs a place to play and socialise.
Vivien Dymock, Fundraising Manager at the Log Cabin told us that our quiz master, Ann Leaver who is a director at Northfields asked “truly excellent questions, some of the best I’ve ever had to answer”.
Vivien also thanked us by saying “You all put in a tremendous amount of hard work, for which we are most grateful.” "Team Northfields" also put their thinking caps on and participated in the quiz.
Spearheaded by our CEO Richard Palfreeman, who is a trustee of the Log Cabin, we are pleased to say that this event raised a total of £913.40. Part of this total was put toward supporting around 70 children and young people with additional needs and disabilities over the half term break. Of those 70 children supported by the Log Cabin this week around 50% require 1:1 support from the inspiring staff and volunteers of the Log Cabin. The remaining funds will be used for Halloween events on 31st October!
