A popular Potters Bar social group has raised hundreds of pounds for children living in poverty.

A charity quiz night, hosted by the Potters Bar Indians, on Saturday, May 13, at the Life Church in Cuffley, raised £2,500 for Club Rafiki.

Club Rafiki is a small charity, based in Welwyn Garden City and St Albans, dedicated to supporting the educational needs of children living in poverty at Nanyuki Prep School in Kenya.

The charity aims for all children in poverty to receive schooling to increase their prospects of getting a good job, and encourages youngsters in the UK to become pen friends with children in Nanyuki.

Bunty Shah, who is a member of Potters Bar Indians, said: “Potters Bar Indians has become a popular social group that encourages its members to shop locally and hold events locally.”
