Our Quiz-mas Fundraiser
A huge thank you to everyone who came to our Quiz-mas Fundraiser at the end of November, as well as to Meg and the whole team at the Home Community Cafe for hosting us, Brendan Conway, our excellent quizmaster, and of course the local businesses who donated prizes for the raffle. There was music, fantastic food, and more importantly, we raised over £900 for refugees this Christmas.
The money raised at the fundraiser, combined with the generous donations of local residents, all contributed to Care 4 Calais SW London’s recent Christmas Appeal. In total, 150 £10 gift cards were distributed, 200 adult gifts, and 160 children’s gifts. Given out by Father Christmas, the donations have made a real difference to the many refugee and asylum seeker families resettled locally this Christmas.
Thank you so much to everyone who donated gifts, gave their time to help Care4Calais wrap the presents, as well as to the Spread Eagle Pub in Wandsworth for providing some much-needed space. A great team effort!
