The Prince of Wales Hospice 

Total UK has continuously supported The Prince of Wales Hospice in West Yorkshire, participating in numerous fundraising activities in 2019.  

As part of our 50th anniversary celebrations, we are furthering our commitment to the Yorkshire region and, despite the current health crisis, continuing to participate in virtual, fundraising activities for the Pontefract-based charity.  

The Prince of Wales Hospice provides palliative care and support for patients with life-limiting illness and their families. Since 1989, the Hospice has been providing free, 24-hour care to the Five Towns area of West Yorkshire.  

Only 25% of Hospice costs are covered by the NHS, which creates the need to fundraise over three million pounds annually. Of every £1 raised, 87p is spent directly on patient care and 13p is invested to raise more funds.  

Rebecca Taylor, community and partnerships fundraiser at The Prince of Wales Hospice, said: “The Coronavirus pandemic has put a stop to most of our planned fundraising events this year but we must continue to raise money so we are looking forward to hosting our second virtual quiz. We are so grateful to our stellar line-up of celebrities who are giving up their time to put on an entertaining evening and we hope as many people as possible will be able to take part and join in the fun.”   


How to get involved

The star-studded quiz is open to all and is completely free, and will be hosted on the Just Giving Page. Donations to the Hospice are extremely welcome, and can be easily made before, during, or after the quiz. 

To join us virtually on Thursday 17th December, 2020 at 19:00 (GMT), or make a donation in advance, please visit the Just Giving page.  

Can’t make the 17th December? Don’t worry. The quiz will be recorded and accessible after 17th December on The Prince of Wales YouTube channel so you can get your quiz fix at any time.
