Nightingale House Hospice supporters can help raise vital funds from the comfort of their own homes in a virtual quiz night tomorrow evening.

With so many of the hospice’s planned fundraising events either cancelled or postponed, the event will be a great way to bring together the community and raise much needed funds.

The quiz is free to join live on the hospice Facebook page (@Nightingalehouse) and those taking part will have the opportunity to make a donation during the event tomorrow (Wednesday) evening starting at 7.30pm.

The hospice have said, “With a show business theme, the quiz will be hosted by local actress, Ruby Snape, whose career spans over 30 years in theatre, TV and Film. The virtual quiz will be filmed from stately home Trevor Hall, near Llangollen. The present owner, Louise Parker and her late husband were tour agents for bands such as The Prodigy, Boyzone, Nirvana, All Saints, Steps and many others. Their home is lined with pop memorabilia from their days in the music industry. There will also be general knowledge questions too, so please put your thinking caps and join in.”

All donations however large or small will be appreciated. Hospice daily running costs are just over £9,000 so every penny helps.

Ruby said: “I feel honoured to be hosting the fundraising quiz for Nightingale House Hospice. Having grown up in the area I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to support this wonderful charity. Nightingale House has continued patient care throughout these worrying times, especially when hospices are struggling to raise funds.

“The quiz is going to be a fun, uplifting evening and I’m so grateful to have the chance to thank everyone involved, including nurses, support staff, carers and to all the people who give up their valuable time to support this wonderful Hospice.”

Hospice fundraiser Bethan Scott added: “We are so grateful to Louise Parker for enabling this great opportunity to live stream Nightingale House’s second virtual quiz night from the magnificent Trevor Hall.

“We are also extremely excited to have local film, television and theatre actress Ruby Snape as our quiz host for the evening. It will be another great opportunity to bring our community together and thank them for their incredible support.”
Ruby trained at the Guildford School of Acting and has worked extensively in television, film, theatre, commercials and voice-over.
