Well done to everyone who gave up their Sunday to get hot and sweaty in a village hall to raise money for such a worthy cause.[/p][p]Our next open event takes place on the 11th May 2019 - a concert featuring [url=https://www.facebook.com/kgaremusic/]Kayleigh Gare [/url]& Friends, and there will be plenty of opportunities to sponsor the Pruce Newman team as we take on some exciting challenges in 2019.[/p][p][b]October Quiz n Chips raises £1,000 towards our target![/b][/p][p]Huge thanks to everyone who turned out on a wet Friday night last week to join us in our first ever Quiz n Chips night at The Green Dragon in Wymondham. The venue was packed, and thanks to the generosity of Pruce Newman's employees, families and friends, we raised £1,000 on the night for The Benjamin Foundation. [/p][p]The Quiz n Chips night was just one of a packed calendar of events that we have taking place during the year - next up is our Zumbathon on Sunday 25th November![/p][p][br][/p][p][b]Our Challenge[/b][/p][p]The Benjamin Foundation was set up by Richard and Vanessa Draper in 1994 following the death of their son Benjamin in a motorcycle accident. Starting by providing rural youth services in North Norfolk, the charity has since grown to help around 2,000 people across Norfolk and Suffolk each year, providing them with hope, opportunity, stability and independence.[/p][p]East Anglian Engineering company Pruce Newman are delighted to announce that we will be supporting The Benjamin Foundation as our Charity of the Year, through a range of fundraising events and promotional activities between now and June 2019.[/p][p]The charity offers a wide range of services, including:[/p][p]Accommodation centres for homeless young people. These provide support and a safe place to live for vulnerable 16-25 year olds with no home, helping them get their lives back on track. They can also accommodate young people who may benefit more from living in a family home.[/p][p]Support to strengthen family relationships by working with parents and children. The Benjamin Foundation works in more than 80 schools where they support children with their emotional wellbeing, and parents who need some extra help.[/p][p]Help with every day issues such as finding affordable childcare, with their nurseries and pre- and after school clubs in North Walsham and Ditchingham. These help parents continue with their jobs, knowing their children are in safe hands.[/p][p]Five retail stores, the profits from which go back into the charity. The Benjamin Foundation has furniture store branches in Holt, Dereham and Norwich, which sell donated furniture and white goods. Their Re-use shop in Ipswich sells a wide range of second-hand items, and Kidstore, in North Walsham, sells nearly new kids clothing, baby equipment and toys.[/p][p]More information about The Benjamin Foundation, and the support that they provide, can be found at [url=https://benjaminfoundation.co.uk/home]benjaminfoundation.co.uk[/url][/p]
