Midwich quiz night raises £8550 for mental health charity
Diss-based AV distributor Midwich has raised £8550 for mental health charity Norfolk and Waveney Mind.
The money was raised at the distributor’s 9th annual quiz night which was attended by over 150 staff members and their families and friends, and supporting manufacturers.
Midwich has committed to raise between £40-50k for the Mind charity throughout 2019-20 as part of its Corporate and Social Responsibility (CSR) focus.
Midwich staff members and quiz organisers Claire Wattam and Scott Norman said it was a “record breaking” night for the charity in terms of funds raised, the number of prizes donated and the number of attendees.
Alexandra Haswell, Fundraising and Campaigns Manager for Norfolk and Waveney Mind, commented: “We are delighted Midwich chose to support us and raise funds to help us offer an extensive range of support, advice and information to the people, businesses and communities within Norfolk and Waveney.
“As an independent charity, we are very grateful for the support of our local community.”
