A large dose of (friendly) competition between lawyers permeated the Birmingham ACS office on Thursday last week. The return of the annual quiz and curry night to raise money for the Child Brain Injury Trust (CBIT) was welcomed back by a very excitable, competitive group of lawyers, case managers, financial advisors and others.
The fundraising total is yet to be confirmed but it looks like we've raised well over £1,500 for CBIT, which is fantastic news. CBIT does not receive funding from the Government in England or Wales, therefore, fundraising events like this one make a real difference to the charity. As the leading voluntary sector organisation providing emotional and practical support, information and learning opportunities for families and professionals affected by childhood acquired brain injury across the UK, they are one of our key partners.
And who won I hear you say... I'm going to be the diplomatist and say we all did!
