A pub quiz to raise funds for a family centre that provides breastfeeding and midwifery support to new mums has raised £500.

The event, held at the Dukes Head pub, Highgate High Street, on Wednesday of last week kicked off a fundraising campaign for the Highgate Family Centre, which is based at Highgate Primary School in North Hill.

After a period of uncertainty, a successful campaign by the centre has resulted in the Whittington Hospital committing to providing health services there for the next financial year.

But vital resources are still needed to support its work.

Highgate Primary headteacher William Dean said: “It is not the first time that the school has had to fight for funding to continue to run the centre.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
