The charity is dependent on fundraising and public donations which is why it is encouraging locals to host a quiz night or fundraise in their own wonderful – or wacky – ways. In Newcastle and Gateshead Marie Curie Nurses and healthcare professionals can provide expert hospice care to people in their own home and at its hospice in Elswick.

Carly Searle, Marie Curie Community Fundraiser for Newcastle and Gateshead, said:“Whether you’re a maths whiz or a hobby entomologist, put your brain power towards a great cause this summer by hosting or participating in a Big Summer Quiz to help support the crucial work Marie Curie does across the UK.

“Today, one in four people don't get the care and support they need at the end of life. Living with a terminal illness is a rollercoaster of practical needs and emotions. For people experiencing dying, death, or bereavement, there’s no guarantee that services available to them can meet all their needs 24/7 or that they will be supported emotionally to cope. Every pound raised is vital to help us improve end of life care and give people the vital emotional and practical help they need. For help now, contact our free Information and Support service on 0800 090 2309 or visit”
