Join St Columbus Hospice for our New! Hospice Home Pub Quiz!

Posted: 1st May 2020

It is important to us all that we look after each other and our community by staying safe and social distancing. This has meant a fair bit of re-planning for our fundraising team! Happily, despite postponing our Giant Pub Quiz in its traditional format, we are delighted to be able to bring it to you online!

So, get your Quaranteam together, grab a Quarantini and join us at 7pm on Friday 8th May for the St Columba’s Hospice Home Pub Quiz.

The Quiz will be hosted on Zoom by our virtual Quizmaster, Goose’s Quizzes. All you need is a laptop, tablet or phone with access to the internet and zoom downloaded/installed  ( )

We hope you agree, it’s a great way for us to come together as a community, have fun and test our knowledge – all from the comfort of home. And, there will of course be prizes for the best team name and the winning team!

If you have already signed up for our Giant Pub Quiz, please get in touch via to enter your team and get the link.

It has been heart-warming to feel everyone pulling together for their local hospice in spite of such difficult circumstances, so if you are unable to donate at this time we would still love you to join us. Simply get in touch via to enter your team/individual name and we will send you the link.

Here at the Hospice our incredible staff are working hard to continue delivering our services and help reach as many people as possible. We have adapted our ways of working to ensure we can still provide in-patient care to those who need it the most. We are providing virtual consultations and support across our community as well as sharing expertise with other healthcare providers.

Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to having fun with you in our Hospice Home Pub Quiz next Friday.
