Tom Allen hosts Halloween fundraising quiz for St Christopher’s Hospice

The charity says it is still 'hundreds of thousands' down after its fundraising events were called due to Coronavirus


Comedian Tom Allen is hosting a Halloween-themed online quiz for St Christopher’s Hospice this Thursday. 

Currently starring in TV’s ‘Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice’, Tom is hoping to raise over £10,000 towards the Sydenham hospice’s work.

As the News has reported, the hospice has been left hundreds of thousands short after COVID-19 cancelled the majority of its fundraising events.

 The hospice supports around 1,200 people at any given time across Southwark, Lambeth, Lewisham Bromley and Croydon.

“I’ll be live in your living room with some fiendishly tricky questions, and we’ll be having a great time at the Spooktacular quiz,” said Tom.

“If you can help me raise £10,000 on the night, it would fund over 650 visits by specialist nurses to people at home, where they can stay safe with their families this winter. 

“It’s such a tough time for everyone, but however much you can afford to give, please help bridge the gap at St Christopher’s. 

“It will help mean that they can still be there for your friends, family and neighbours if you need them.”

You can join the quiz on Facebook Live and YouTube Live at 7.30pm on Thursday, October 22.
