Marie Curie is urging people to get quizzing to support its work

This summer the UK’s leading end of life charity Marie Curie is calling on all trivia titans and quiz queens in Merseyside to host a Big Summer Quiz and help the charity care for people living with a terminal illness.  

Marie Curie’s Big Summer Quiz is a fun excuse for a get together and to put your friends and family’s knowledge to the test. With suggested questions and guidance, Marie Curie has got everything you need to get planning your Big Summer Quiz, visit mariecurie.org.uk/fundraise 

The money raised from holding a quiz will help Marie Curie provide care and support for people living with any illness they are likely to die from, and those close to them. 

The charity is dependent on fundraising and public donations which is why it is encouraging locals to  host a quiz night or fundraise in their own wonderful – or wacky – ways. In Merseyside Marie Curie Nurses and healthcare professionals can provide expert hospice care to people in their own home, at  its hospice in Woolton and through its Urgent Hospice Care at Home and Companions who provide  the emotional and practical support you want – at home, in hospital or over the phone. 

The charity also provides free Information and Support, which is available to anyone with an illness  they’re likely to die from and those close to them. It offers practical and emotional support on  everything from symptom management and day-to-day care to financial information and  bereavement support. 

Jen Corrigan, Marie Curie Community Fundraiser for Merseyside, said:

“Whether you’re a maths  whiz or a hobby entomologist, put your brain power towards a great cause this summer by hosting  or participating in a Big Summer Quiz to help support the crucial work Marie Curie does across the  UK.  

“Today, one in four people don’t get the care and support they need at the end of life. Living with a terminal illness is a rollercoaster of practical needs and emotions. For people experiencing dying,  death, or bereavement, there’s no guarantee that services available to them can meet all their needs 24/7 or that they will be supported emotionally to cope. Every pound raised is vital to help us  improve end of life care and give people the vital emotional and practical help they need. For help now, contact our free Information and Support service on 0800 090 2309.
