In a remarkable display of community spirit and generosity, our Big Pub Quiz event in partnership with Vocation Brewery last November raised an impressive £10,300! The event, held on 9th November 2023 at pubs across Calderdale, brought together individuals, businesses, and local quiz goers for a night of quizzing and fundraising.

The Big Pub Quiz saw participants joining forces to support Overgate Hospice alongside Vocation Brewery who provided a free cask of their signature Bread & Butter ale for pubs to sell throughout the campaign with a donation from each pint going to the Hospice. The dedication and enthusiasm of everyone involved shone through helping to raise the impressive total.

The money raised will help care for patients and their families at Overgate, ensuring that they can make the most of each moment and make precious memories together.

Rachel Lumb, Community & Events Fundraising Lead said " The overwhelming support displayed at the Big Pub Quiz has truly touched our hearts. Together, we've not only had a fantastic time but also made a significant impact on the lives of those supported by Overgate Hospice. The total raised is a testament to the kindness and compassion within our community. Thank you to every pub, participant, and volunteer for making this fundraiser an incredible success and to our event partner Vocation Brewery.”

This year’s Big Pub Quiz will take place on Thursday 17th October and we hope to see our community come together once again for a night of fun!
