Marie Curie's Big Summer Quiz coming to Worcestershire 

Bromsgrove Editorial 8th Jun, 2024   0

MARIE CURIE is urging people across Worcestershire to host a Big Summer Quiz to support people living with terminal illnesses.

The quiz offers friends and families to test their knowledge and contribute to a vital cause.

The charity provides everything needed to organise a quiz, including suggested questions and detailed guidance.

Funds raised from these quizzes will enable Marie Curie to continue providing essential care and support for those facing terminal illnesses and their loved ones.

The charity relies heavily on fundraising and public donations, and it encourages locals to host quiz nights or find unique and fun ways to raise money.

In Worcestershire, Marie Curie’s free Information and Support service is available to anyone with a terminal illness and their families.




The service offers practical advice and emotional support on various issues, including symptom management, day-to-day care, financial guidance, and bereavement support.

Peter Sara, senior community fundraiser for West Midlands and South West, said: “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.”
