Blackthorns Have All The Answers

Blackthorns Chartered Accountants LyeA huge thanks to Blackthorns Chartered Accountants.

Their annual quiz night raised an astonishing amount for our charity.

The event, held at Wombourne Civic Hall, attracts lots of entries from the local accountancy, banking and legal professions. That meant there was stiff competition for The Friends of Alfie Johnson team but ensured a fantastic level of generosity during the evening.

In addition to ticket sales, refreshment sales and a prize raffle there was a superb charity auction.  Up for bidding were lots such as a Manchester United football shirt signed by Wayne Rooney and a ball signed by Aston Villa players.

The end result? Well our team came in a creditable 6th place in the quiz.  However the real winners are the children that we will be able to help after receiving a cheque for a staggering £6,000.

Once again we would like to say a big thank you to Karen, Vicky and Fiona, and all the whole team at Blackthorns for their support.  A special mention for Becky too – she and her colleagues put a huge amount of effort into the event to make sure it was a success.

We now have even more funds available to help disabled children in Dudley, Sandwell and Wolverhampton. If you know anybody who need specialised equipment or services please tell them about us. We are here to help.
