Quick-thinking couple help the hospice

21 February 2017

A COUPLE from Standish have produced their 18th quiz to raise money for Wigan and Leigh Hospice.

Quick-thinking couple help the hospice

Audrey Lucas, 85, writes all of the questions for the annual quiz and Sam Lucas, 83, prints out the quiz which can be bought around Standish, in Hospice shops and from the Hospice reception.

Over the years the couple have raised thousands of pounds by coming up with a series of themed quizzes including ones based on rivers, capital cities, fish, animals, places in England and more.

Audrey said: "I used to write a quiz for an arts festival but when it ended people asked me to keep on writing the quiz for a different cause and Sam suggested the hospice.
"I have always liked writing quizzes and doing anagrams and as soon as I finish writing one quiz I start to think about the next one. I always put a few easy ones at the beginning to get people started.
"People ask me for the quiz every year, including someone from Scarborough who sends me £1 in advance, and it's really grown in popularity over the years."

The quiz this year is about countries and there are 75 questions to be answered. All question sheets must be returned by April 1st when they will be marked by Audrey and Sam.

All those who get all 75 correct will have their names put into a hat and three will be drawn out to win prizes of £25, £10 and £5.
