One thousand pounds was raised for a Yorkshire brain tumour charity when supporters took part in a charity quiz organised by Calderdale solicitors Wilkinson Woodward Bearders.
The event, which was held at the MBi Shay Stadium, raised vital funds for BTRS (Brain Tumour Research and Support across Yorkshire).
The quiz was held to boost the fundraising efforts of Ravenscliffe Special School Head Teacher Martin Moorman, who recently joined sons Jake and Harry in completing the brutal 490 mile “Camino” trek in the French Pyrenees in support of the charity. Their epic trek was inspired by Jake’s recovery from lifesaving brain surgery.
Collecting the cheque, Martin said,
“Jake’s incredible recovery from a brain tumour provided the inspiration to raise funds for BTRS, which provides amazing support to brain tumour patients, their families and carers. The money raised by Wilkinson Woodward Bearders has given our campaign a tremendous boost and we are hugely grateful for their support.”
Managing Director of Wilkinson Woodward Bearders Maureen Cawthorn commented,
“We are delighted to support the Moorman family’s fundraising efforts and are very grateful to many local businesses who generously donated prizes for the quiz.”
