A LLANGOLLEN pub has raised an incredible £1,500 for Nightingale House Hospice.

The money was rasied thanks to the succesful weekly quiz which takes place and was a culmination of fundraising efforts over the last seven months. 

The Sun Trevor has been helping to fundraise for the charity for eight years in total and has raised £24,500 for the Hospice to date. 

Following a year online during the Covid-19 pandemic, the quiz now takes place in person each week, with between 30 and 40 people in attendance on average. 

Maggie Smith, the quizmaster for The Sun Trevor, said: “The Nightingale House Hospice need the money very badly.

"I am very pleased to continue as Quizmaster, raising £1,500 since January this year and a cumulative total of £24,500 over the last 8 years since my sister-in-law, Sandra was cared for by the Hospice.”

"I would also like to pay special tribute to Paul and Katy as the owners of the pub, along with Maggie Smith for her work as Quizmaster.

"The work of Nightingale House Hospice is vital to our community and the money raised for them will be used to help care for those at the end of their lives. They are a fantastic local charity whose work should be commended.”
