On the 18 November we held our inaugural charity quiz at the Novotel Ipswich. We were joined by 144 guests from a wide range of Suffolk businesses. The evening was a great opportunity to introduce The Soma Leo Foundation to new comers and provide progress updates to those who have supported us previously.
We received a huge selection of raffle prizes donated by guests ranging from bottles of wine to a signed photo of singer, Adele. Together we raised nearly £1,400, an amount that will help greatly with the running of our school in Nyiera.
On the night we asked guests to share/like and promote our social media channels to their friends, families and colleagues; we are pleased to confirm we received 174 new likes on Facebook, and 24 new followers on twitter! Our website and social media channels are our primary platform for sending updates on the latest developments.
We also launched our Christmas Appeal for clothes, toys and learning materials that will be shipped to Kenya in early 2016.
Finally we would like to congratulate Stephen Duffety and his team Baker Tilly (RSM UK) who were the winners on the night.
Overall the feedback we have received has been very positive and we hope to run another quiz in spring 2016.
