Cumbrian homebuilder, Russell Armer Homes, has continued to support two causes close to the heart of its Cumbrian homeowners, by raising a whopping £1240 to be split between two charities.
Beneficiaries – MacMillan Cancer Support and The Great North Air Ambulance – received their cheques at Russell Armer Homes’ new OverSands View development in Grange-over-Sands, which comprises 42 two, three and four-bedroom properties with an idyllic estuary view over to Silverdale.
Russell Armer Homes’ office manager, Elaine Goulding, presented the cheques to Sue McDonald, representing MacMillan Cancer Support, and Bruce Evans, of The Great North Air Ambulance. Both of their charities have been supported by the home builder for many years.
The £1240 was raised by staging the 15th Annual Russell Armer Homes Quiz Night, at Kendal Golf Club. Quiz teams from various professional and financial services’ companies competed against trivia boffins from a wide variety of other types of organisation, which included some Russell Armer Homes’ suppliers.
In the end, it was first-time entrant, the Lake District National Park Authority, that swept to victory, to be crowned Russell Armer Homes Quiz Champions 2016.
Of the £1240 that entered the kitty, £225 came from donations by the 26 teams that participated, whilst the rest was raised by a raffle.
Russell Armer Homes’ managing director, Martyn Nicholson, said: “Our charity quiz night seems to become more popular with each passing year and we are delighted to have now been able to stage this event for the fifteenth time. The money raised goes to two incredibly good and relevant causes, which we know our quiz entrants are pleased to support.
“Bringing 26 quiz teams together is no mean feat and our thanks goes to Elaine Goulding, who has, once again, been tireless in her efforts to make this important and now much-anticipated charity event happen.”
