Bradford firm’s fun quiz boosts nature centre
A CHARITY quiz night at The Boathouse in Bradford on Avon raised over £1,000 for Hope Nature Centre.
The event was organised by Energy Management LLP in Bradford on Avon and sold out, with 80 guests. The evening had an auction and raffle as well as a lively quiz.
Energy Management CEO Steve Retford said “Several members of staff visit the animal park and café at Hope Nature Centre and wanted to do something to support the charity. We were planning a staff social night and thought it would be great to combine this with a fundraising event.
“My team really outdid themselves with organising such a fantastic night and engaging with so many local companies who gave raffle and auction prizes to help us to reach such an amazing figure of over £1,000.”
Hope Nature Centre, in Southwick, will be using the funds to finish work on the community bus they are creating, which should be open for use from January. The bus will be used to run events for local schools and community groups, and a programme of events and activities are planned for 2019
