Joe McGann, Shobna Gulati , Kate Ford and Shane Richie will be just a few celebs taking part.

"When all our events were cancelled, and our fundraising began to dry up, our supporters really stepped up to help keep our doors open so we could continue to care for patients and their

families. In recognition we felt it was only right to give something back and organise something special for everyone to smile about and so the idea of The Big Hospice Celebrity Quiz was born!

"Our celebrity line up is fantastic, each guest brings personality and charisma to the quiz. We are so grateful that they have donated their time to support our Hospice."

The virtual quiz will be held LIVE on Friday, July 24 at 7pm from The Prince of Wales Hospice with hosts Jo Schofield, Head of Clinical Services and Jo Benson, Nurse Manager.

The quiz is completely free to take part in on the night, however donations are welcome. Every supporter who donates will be entered into a free prize draw to win £250 courtesy of proud sponsors HARIBO.
