Virtual quiz with High Peak MP to raise funds for local hospice care

High Peak people affected by life-limiting illness are set to benefit from a virtual fundraising quiz hosted by the borough’s MP. 

Robert Largan MP is set to host a general knowledge quiz on Friday 5th June, to raise money for Blythe House Hospicecare. 

A suggested minimum donation of £5 per household will ensure that the hospice can continue to provide free services to local people who are affected by life-limiting illnesses including cancer, heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and motor neurone disease. 

Throughout the ongoing COVID-19 situation, hospice nurses and healthcare assistants continue to deliver palliative and end of life care to patients and families across the local community. The hospice team is also delivering counselling, advice and support over the phone. 

Robert said: ‘Blythe House do amazing work and I’m really pleased to be able to help support them during this difficult time when a lot of traditional fundraising efforts are not possible. I look forward to testing the people of High Peak on their pub quiz skills!’ 

Alistair Rogerson, Business Development Manager at Blythe House Hospicecare, added: ‘We are very grateful to Robert for giving his time for free and offering to host this quiz in aid of the hospice. If 50 households take part, donating just £5 each, the money raised will pay for 15 hours of Hospice at Home care for a local patient who wishes to die in the comfort of their own home, surrounded by their loved ones.’  

The quiz winner will receive a hamper of gifts including biscuits, activities and a House of Commons bottle of whisky donated by Robert.
