The Worthing-based hospice is calling on local pubs, clubs, businesses, schools and organisations to take part in this year’s Mega March Hospice Quiz. Venues can choose to show their support by holding a quiz, a raffle or simply displaying a St Barnabas House collecting box for the month of March.
The Sussex-wide campaign – organised by Friends of Sussex Hospices – is now in its fifth year and has raised over £71,000 for hospice care providers over the past five years.
This year, Mega March is being endorsed by Alexander Armstrong, popular co-host of the TV show Pointless.
Mary Bye, Fundraiser at St Barnabas House, said: “Last year, six local organisations took part, raising £1,499 for St Barnabas. For any venues who would like to get involved, we can offer support including posters and tops tips as well as help on day from our volunteers if needed.”
Maggie Zarins, a volunteer at the monthly quiz night for St Barnabas House at the Swallows Return pub, Goring, said: “Come along and join us on Thursday 28 March for our Mega March quiz. It’s going to be great fun. We always have a lovely raffle with plenty of prizes, all to raise funds for our local hospice.”
