A HOSPICE is appealing for pubs and social clubs to host a quiz and help raise vital funds for patient care.

St Luke's Hospice, based in Winsford, has launched a new fundraising initiative which it hopes will bring communities together for a fun evening at their local.

Signing up is free and includes a pub quiz pack to make hosting stress free and easy.

Once registered, each pub will receive a pre-written quiz with a variety of topics including sport, entertainment and picture rounds, posters, a collection box and tri-fold advertising card to display on the night.

The Rifleman Inn was one of the first pubs to sign up for the hospice's initiative.

Landlady Claire Forbes said: "My husband’s Nan was at St Luke’s and received end of life care there.

"The staff at the hospice were amazing. It’s a place that’s very close to my heart."

St Luke’s community partnerships manager, Angela Slack, said: "Our Pub Quiz gives supporters the opportunity to not only raise money for their local hospice but also show some love to their local pub or social club and have a good time in the process.

"We’ve put together a really exciting and interesting quiz that we hope our supporters will enjoy and hopefully won’t find too challenging and we look forward to working with some brilliant local businesses."
