Quiz & supper raises more than £480 for Escape

We’re delighted that our second Charity Quiz & Supper Evening of the year on Friday, May 5 managed to raise £484 in total for Escape Support Group, which is one of our charities of the year.

There was also a raffle during the evening, with a selection of prizes from our shop, local suppliers and friends, with all proceeds donated to the charity.

The winning team was Joy Division and they each got to take home a hamper and also the Rumwell Cup. It was the first time they had been to one of our quiz nights so congratulations to them. We hope they come back to our next quiz night on Friday, September 29 to defend their title.

Escape has been supporting families who have a child, or children, with disabilities or specific individual needs in the Somerset area for 17 years.

Escape’s main aim is to provide fun activities, allowing children the opportunity to experience a positive childhood where they are integrated fully, and are able to share experiences that will enhance and enrich their lives, which other children and families may take for granted.

Sarah Phippen, Team Leader at Escape Support Group, said: “We would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to Rumwell Farm Shop for hosting the quiz in aid of Escape. We had a great evening and the support of its team and customers is greatly appreciated. The money raised will make a huge difference to the lives of the families we support, subsidising fun days out, and providing fantastic memory making experiences.”

Escape offers support to families who have a child, or children, with any form of additional need or disability, no matter how mild or severe. A diagnosis is not required to become a member.
