St Barnabas House is calling all local pubs, bars and restaurants to take part in this year’s Mad March Pub Quiz fundraising campaign.
The Worthing hospice has teamed up with Friends of Sussex Hospices, a volunteer-led charity which supports the 12 hospice care providers across Sussex.
Mad March Pub Quiz is sponsored by Harvey’s Brewery and the campaign is again endorsed by the popular Pub Landlord, Al Murray.
The campaign, which has raised over £52,000 over the past four years, encourages pubs, bars or restaurants to hold a quiz or raffle to raise funds for their local hospice, or simply have a collecting box for the month of March.
Mary Bye, Fundraising Officer at St Barnabas House, said: “Last year eight local pubs took part, raising £1,361.44 for the hospice.
“This year we have two pubs signed up already. The White Hart in Littlehampton are holding a quiz on Sunday 4 March, while The Swallows Return will be hosting a Mad March Pub Quiz on Thursday 29 March.
“The Gardeners Arms in Sompting and The Coach and Horses in Worthing will also be holding raffles.
“We can offer fundraising support for any pubs, bars or restaurants who would like to take part, including posters, fundraising materials and volunteers.”
Maggie Zarins, who is a volunteer at the monthly quiz night for St Barnabas House at the Swallows Return pub, said: “Come along and join us on Thursday 29 March for our Mad March quiz – great fun with a few laughs along the way.
“We always have a lovely raffle with plenty of prizes, and maybe an auction item too, all to raise funds for our local hospice.”
