Virtual quizzes prove vital for hospice

Rob George 21st Apr, 2020   0

TEAMS from as far afield as New York and Vietnam took part in a hospice’s first virtual quiz – helping raise more than £1,500 for its care.

St Richard’s Hospice held its Big Virtual Quiz on Saturday, April 11 and saw 62 teams take part, with £1,530 raised to help continue its caring services.

The family-friendly quiz was hosted by Richard ‘Hursty’ Hurst and saw teams take part from their homes, via video conferencing website Zoom.

The second ten-round quiz will be held from 5pm on Saturday, April 25 – with participating teams entered into a draw to win a family pizza meal deal.

Kelly Johns, fund-raiser at St Richard’s, said: “We thoroughly enjoyed our first virtual quiz night and were thrilled to be joined by so many for a fun evening of quizzing with our fabulous host, Hursty.

“While we’re all staying home to stay safe, we hope our quiz nights can be a way to keep the family entertained while helping us raise money to continue caring for patients and loved ones.

“We hope you can join us for our next quiz this weekend – get your thinking caps on now!”

Quiz rounds include general knowledge, music, a dedicated round for younger players and more.

All teams need to take part is some paper, pens and a device with internet access.

The hospice is asking all quiz participants to continue following Government advice on social distancing and for teams to be from the same household.

Entry to the quiz is £20 for a team of up to five people. To sign up for the next quiz, visit
