After the fun and games at Porkstock this year we had a number of auction prizes left over that we simply could not fit into an action packed day and evening at the Norfolk show-ground. It was decided that the best thing to do was to give these auction prizes over to Nelsons Journey to use at there big Christmas Quiz, which of course we attended.
The bad news was although Porkstock had two teams neither of them came close to challenging the top positions, however a lot of fun was had by all involved.
The great news was our auction prizes donated by the fabulous supporters of Porkstock including Woodfordes, Old Hall Farm, Coastal Expeditions and Charlie Hodson made over £2,000 on the evening.
This event raised an overwhelming £10,461.41 from ticket sales, sponsorship and activities on the night all of which will go directly back into the work that we do with bereaved children and young people in Norfolk. This amazing sum that we raised from the Christmas Quiz is enough to fund the salary of a Child Bereavement support worker for a six months in this period of time they will support in excess of 100 children or young people dealing with bereavement issues.
