Test your trivia to raise funds for hospice care

Quizzers are being invited to get their thinking caps on and join a new charity event in aid of John Taylor Hospice.

The quiz night will be held at Marston Farm Hotel on Bodymoor Heath Lane in Sutton Coldfield on Friday 15 November and proceeds will support people in the West Midlands who are living with a terminal illness.

There’s a top prize up for grabs for the winning team and all participants have the chance to take home one of more than 60 raffle prizes including an overnight stay in an executive room at the Marston Farm Hotel, restaurant vouchers, beauty treatments and a voucher for a bungee jump.

The charity quiz night has been organised by Brenda’s Brigade – a family of hospice supporters who hold fundraising events in memory of their beloved relative Brenda Tuckey. Great-grandmother Brenda, who was cared for by John Taylor Hospice, died of lung cancer on 21 June this year, aged 84.

Granddaughter Nicola Heywood from Tamworth explained: “The support that Nan and our family got from the hospice was just brilliant and we couldn’t have coped without them. Fundraising is our way to say thanks for everything the hospice did and to try and make sure that care is always available for families like ours when they need it.

“The quiz promises to be a fun night out for families and friends and will be raising money for a fantastic cause.”

Tickets are priced at £10 which includes food . To enter your team call 0121 728 6739 or visit the quiz booking page here: www.johntaylorhospice.org.uk/events/brendas-brigade-quiz-night/

What our patients think

“I’d have really struggled without them”

“They’ve been ever so good to me and that’s why I wanted to fundraise and do something to help just like they’ve helped me.”

Philomena Sharpe

“The impact they had will never be forgotten”

“The community nurses were so helpful and they’re lovely people. They put my mind at rest and it’s such a comfort to know you’re not on your own.”

Jackie Day

“An angel sent into my life”

“I can’t thank Angie (patient and family support worker) enough for everything she’s done for us. She’s so reliable and professional – a wonderful person. She took away all these worries and was there for me in my time of need.”

Patricia Smith-Evans

“I’ve really enjoyed it”

“The FAB Programme has helped me to get fitter and my walking is better. Everyone is really nice at the hospice, they’re friendly and they’re good company. I’d recommend it to anyone who is in a similar situation to me.”
