Quiz Night raises £3,000 in aid of Brain Injury Charity
LexisNexis® Risk Solutions, a global provider of information solutions with offices based in Cardiff, this Tuesday hosted a charity quiz night in aid of Headway Cardiff & South East, a local charity which helps people affected by acquired brain injury (ABI) to rebuild their lives.
The quiz night raised £3,000 and all proceeds will go towards supporting the wide range of charitable services that Headway Cardiff & South East provides, including: social groups, life skills sessions, counselling, an Information & Outreach service and Independence & Wellbeing Centre based at Rookwood Hospital.
Headway Cardiff & South East is reliant on public donations in order to operate. It currently has seven full-time and five part-time members of staff and a team of around 40 highly skilled and committed volunteers to help deliver its services.
In addition to the quiz, various other activities took place on the night including an auction, a raffle and one brave member of the LexisNexis® Risk Solutions team having her head shaved, all of which contributed towards the grand total raised.
Dean Curtis, Managing Director at LexisNexis® Risk Solutions, commented:
“We are so pleased to be making a positive difference in aid of Headway Cardiff & South East, a charity very close to the company’s heart. This quiz night was dedicated to the memory of our colleague, who sadly passed away last year. We hope these donations will allow people with ABI and those close to them, to receive the rehabilitation and care they so rightfully deserve.”
Lucy Lawler, Fundraising & Communications at Headway Cardiff & South East, commented:
“We are so grateful to the staff from LexisNexis Risk Solutions for volunteering their time to host a fundraising quiz night in aid of Headway Cardiff & South East Wales. Our charity relies on donations to deliver our desperately needed services. Community events are a fantastic way to raise awareness as well as vital funds. Everything raised will help people affected by acquired brain injury to rebuild their lives.”
