This year was the fourth Annual Quiz organized by SIFA Fireside volunteer Sandra Benbow from the BSEEN project at Aston University and hosted by Henrik Court from Birmingham Chamber of Commerce.
The night was more popular than ever with 28 teams, more prizes for the raffle and an even bigger total of money raised. Local businesses and supporters had kindly given tickets, gift sets and days out for the raffle, as well as a signed cricket shirt from Warwickshire County Cricket Club and an iPad donated by KPMG which were auctioned at the end of the evening, causing quite a battle between bidders. By the end of the night we had raised an amazing £1367.12 which with Gift Aid amounts to £1, 563.44. Our recent Social Return on Investment audit showed that for every £1 invested in SIFA Fireside £9.77 is saved on public services, so this event alone has saved Public Services £15,274.80! We’d like to say a big thank you to Sandra Benbow, Henrik Court, the B4 Bar and to all the staff and volunteers who helped make the night such a success
