A HOSPICE appeal has been boosted thanks to a charity quiz.

The Rowans Hospice at Home service has been given £1,250, which was raised at accountacy firm Menzies’ quiz night held at Broad Oak Social Club, Hilsea.

Managing Partner, Stephen Pritchard said: ‘Our annual charity quiz has always received a good turn out with support from local businesses, which has helped tremendously with raising funds for the charity. We chose to support the appeal as we feel it provides an important service to the community. ‘

The Hospice at Home service allows people to die at home if that is their last wish.

Rowans matron Erika Lipscombe said: ‘We were delighted Menzies chose to raise money and to help raise awareness of The Rowans Hospice at Home service, which provides end-of-life care for people in their homes. We participated in the quiz and were delighted by the amount of companies who supported the event.’ The cash total was boosted by raffle tickets sold on the night.
