Barbara manages all the Applications for Funding for Young Carers in West Berkshire and liaises between West Berks Council Young Carers Project, Activity Providers, Bus and Coach Hire Companies as well as attending some of the projects and activities that we fund. Needless to say, she is a busy lady!! However, Barbara is also a brilliant Quizmaster and her skills were evident again in May when we hosted our 3rd Annual Quiz Night at St. Gabriels School in Newbury.
We were full to capacity and delighted to have teams from Barclays Bank (match fundng), Newbury Rotary Club, Vodafone, Mary Hare School, Pupil Referral Unit (Newbury), St. Gabriels School, Highclere Castle Staff, Parents, Family and Friends.
Entrants were treated to a delicious ploughmans supper, tasty dessert treats, wine and soft drinks and of course, we had our Raffle. We would like to thank all those who donated to our Raffle including Thatcham Garden Centre and Newbury Racecourse.
Our total raised for the evening was £954.00 which will now be going towards Summer Trips to Bournemouth for the 5-11 yrs and Thorpe Park for older children.
THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN TO EVERYONE INVOLVED WITH THIS EVENT.
OUR NEXT BIG FUNDRAISER WILL BE A WINE TASTING EVENING IN THE AUTUMN. WE WILL BE ADVERTISING IN EARLY SEPTEMBER SO KEEP CHECKING FACEBOOK AND OUR WEBSITE.
