St Catherine’s Hospice calls on community to get quizzical

Published: 28 Apr 2020

St Catherine’s Hospice is calling on you, and your family and friends to test your knowledge in their weekly The Big Fat Orange Quiz!

Last week, the local charity launched their first quiz with great success. More than 200 people joined them online for three rounds of questions, including an orange themed round, as a nod to St Catherine’s orange brand, and raised nearly £2,000 in the process.  

This week they’re hoping even more people will join them on Facebook on Wednesday 29 April from 8pm for their second The Big Fat Orange Quiz!

Coming to you in the comfort of your own home, via a Facebook live stream, St Catherine’s encourages you to have some fun alongside others in your community whilst raising vital funds so the hospice can continue to be there for everyone who needs its expert care. All you need to take part is a pen and paper.

Peter Nesbitt, St Catherine’s Hospice Volunteering Manager, had the honour of hosting the hospice’s first Big Orange quiz. He said, “I was quite nervous beforehand as hosting a virtual quiz is different from the day job! But it was a fantastic evening. It was great to see so many people in our community playing along, and to see so many of our volunteers, support staff and nurses take part too. It was really nice for our clinical staff to see people’s messages of support for the amazing work they’re doing providing dedicated care and support on the frontline come through live. Personally, I was really overwhelmed by the level of support for St Catherine’s too. Seeing donations continue to rise was really exciting and the amount we raised exceeded all our expectations. The money people generously donated will make a huge difference. It will allow us to support even more local people through this challenging time. We can’t thank everyone enough and we’re already looking forward to quiz number two!”
