Pub quiz enthusiasts can keep their minds sharp in the name of charity online on Friday, after seeing pubs forced to close their doors due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Fund-raising for the Priscilla Bacon Hospice is facing fresh challenges as the country goes into lockdown so campaigners have planned a virtual pub quiz for Friday, starting at 7pm.

Over £5million of a £12.5m target has been raised for a 24 bed hospice to be built near to the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital, which would replace the Priscilla Bacon Lodge hospice in Unthank Road, which was established over 40 years ago.

A fund-raising spokesperson said: “Join us for our first weekly Virtual Pub Quiz to help keep everyone’s spirits up. Funds raised will go towards building a desperately needed new hospice for Norfolk and Waveney.

“We really appreciate your support and look forward to having you join in the fun!”
