A local law firm has raised nearly £7,000 for two local causes, in the hopes of bringing some extra Christmas cheer to those in need.
Clients of Bedell Cristin were invited to Moores Hotel for the second ‘curry and quiz night’ of the year, in aid of Food for Families and Presents for the Elderly.
“We work with Guernsey families at the Bright Beginnings Children Centre to support the development of a secure, loving relationship between child and caregiver,” said Rachel Copeland of Food for Families.
“Thanks to the amazing amount of money raised at the quiz, we are able to continue to support families over the often-difficult Christmas period.”
Donna Edwards of Presents for the Elderly was similarly delighted by the support received.
“We reduce isolation and bring cheer to the lonely, elderly and vulnerable people in our community through delivery of gifts; in particular those who live alone and receive care from community nurses,” she explained.
“Our aim is to be able to provide enough gifts to ensure that every one of this deserving group receives a present.”
The funds raised on the evening were boosted by two additional donations; one from a private individual, and another from PraxisIFM.
“A big thank you to everyone who took part and helped raise funds for such deserving causes,” said Kate Ovenden, Managing Partner for Bedell Cristin Guernsey.
“We are particularly grateful to those who made such generous donations to boost our total. Everyone at Bedell is delighted with the result.”
