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

“The care was second to none”

“At such a heartbreaking and difficult time, the nurses and care assistants knew exactly what to do and to say – we’d have been lost without them. The care they provided for my beautiful wife was second to none and I’ll be forever grateful.”

Roger Perks

“Nothing is too much trouble”

“I can’t thank hospice teams enough. From fitting grab rails in my house and ordering a reclining bed, reviewing of all my medication, providing me with new medical equipment and even helping to organise domestic help for us at home – they’ve covered everything but are always willing to do even more.”

Jackie Bannister

“I don’t know where I’d be without them”

“The support I get is truly is invaluable and I honestly don’t know where I’d be without them. I’m able to talk openly about my illness and ask for advice and support if I need it. I’ve made some incredible friends and the hospice is a very special place full of laughter and kindness. “
