The Survive Bingo Night, at the Jolly Sailor Pub night was organised by Wards Solicitors’ Jessica Williams, and sponsored by the Firm, to raise money for the work that Survive does. Survive is a Kingswood based charity that provides support, refuge and courses for women and children who are experiencing domestic violence and abuse.
Jessica Williams is not only a fund raising committee member for Survive but also runs drop-in surgeries, once a month, at two of the refuges run by Survive.
In excess of £500 was raised for the charity which will go to fund the above work.
The success of the event was a real team effort. Amy Jones (from Wards Solicitors) was the bingo caller and did a fantastic job – she knew all the bingo calls… two fat ladies; legal eleven! Albion Chambers kindly donated two bottles of champagne as prizes.
Anna Smith the Chief Executive from Survive attended the evening and gave a small talk about the work they do and the staff at the Jolly Sailor Wetherspoons Pub, were invaluable, whether with their collecting buckets or providing superb food.
The room was packed with over 70 people joining in and making it a ‘full house’.
