Hospice to host first ever Virtual Quiz Night for supporters amidst COVID-19 outbreak
ST Clare Hospice’s Community Fundraising team are diversifying their fundraising events and activities amidst the COVID-19 pandemic by hosting their first ever Virtual Quiz Night.
The hospice charity’s Virtual Quiz Night is set to take place from 7-8.30pm on Thursday 30th April 2020 via the video conferencing service, Zoom. Players take part from the comfort of their own home, joining together in household teams, and log on to compete with up to 100 other contestants online. Entry costs £3 per person with all proceeds going to support the vital work of the Hospice’s clinical teams who are still working around the clock on the front line.
Host of the event, and Quiz Master for the evening, is St Clare’s Community Fundraiser Dan Bailey, who said: “We are excited to be coming together to offer this event to everyone in our local community. At such a difficult time, everyone needs a bit of light relief and entertainment – and what better way to spend another night in on the sofa, than by supporting your local front line hospice charity. Our clinical teams need the support of our local community more than ever – and by joining the Virtual Quiz Night you can have fun, and raise funds.”
Dan continued: “Just like many other local charities, we are beginning to feel the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on our usual fundraising income which relies on events and activities taking place – which have all necessarily had to be postponed. As a team we have had to diversify and come up with new ways to raise our voluntary income. The great thing is that this event is also giving something back to our community. I am sure we are all missing that social interaction and entertainment that we are used to – so hopefully we can recreate some of that community spirit and pub quiz experience for everyone, from the comfort of your sofa!”
