On Wednesday, 27th May, Danny Phillips hosted a virtual quiz night in memory of his Mum, District Nursing Sister, Jane Phillips MBE and in aid of the Lawrence Home Nursing Team.

Jane and Dr Martin Lawrence set up the charity in May 1999 and we know they would be both proud of what the team has achieved.

Danny did his Mum and the charity proud by raising over £500 and counting from this inaugural virtual, family quiz night. 

Over the past 10 years, Danny has raised tens of thousands of pounds for the charity from his annual Golf Day, pub quiz nights and marathon sponsorship. Last night’s quiz night replaced this year’s Golf Day which was cancelled due to the health crisis.  We plan to organise more virtual quiz nights so please sign up to our mailing list to ensure you save future dates in your calendar.

Over 40 teams entered and we are pleased to announce the winner of the 1st Virtual Quiz Night was the Corbett Family scoring 49 points out of a possible total of 55.  

Here is the final leaderboard of the top 10 scoring teams:

  1. The Corbett Family (Ant, Fran & Mark) Winners scoring 49/55
