Tomorrow night – 7.30pm on 22 May – local comedian, and Channel Four’s Bake Off: The Professionals presenter, Tom Allen will host a live online event to raise funds for St Christopher’s Hospice, which supports around 1,200 people every day across South East London.
The ‘Fun Time Quiz Time with Tom Allen’ event can be joined on Facebook Live and YouTube Live, details can be found at https://www.stchristophers.org.uk/tomallenquiz
In return for entertaining people directly in their own front rooms during lockdown, Tom is asking for donations to the hospice, however big or small. Currently, all of St Christopher’s 26 charity shops are shut and the hospice has had to cancel fundraising events and sponsored activities. This means a huge shortfall in its fundraising income since the outbreak of Covid-19, but tomorrow night the hospice hopes that its community will back its Emergency Appeal and help keep the hospice caring for those most in need.
Supporters can text the word ‘HOSPICE’ to 70500 to donate £5 to the hospice’s Emergency Appeal.
