Advocates ‘serve’ up a delicious fundraiser
A uniquely enjoyable fundraising event for foodies was held recently in support The Child Brain Injury Trust’s Scottish Child and Family Support Project.
Ampersand’s Lisa Henderson organised a fantastic Sunday Lunch at the Wee Restaurant in North Queensferry, on the Firth of Forth, owned and operated by Craig and Vikki Wood. The stunning location was perfectly matched by the fantastic menu, prepared by chef proprietor, and CIS Chef of the Year 2015, Craig, who was joined in the kitchen by amateur chefs who were all advocates.
Ticket sales to this very special dining event were combined with the proceeds of a silent auction with exclusive prizes provided by Connoisseurs Scotland to raise an absolutely fantastic £4,250 for the charity.
Scottish Fundraising Officer, Claire Murray, said, “An event of this nature not only raises vital funds for our work supporting families in Scotland after a child has injured their brain, but gives us the opportunity to make new contacts, helping to raise awareness of the valuable work we do.”
