Quiz lover Louise fundraises for St Bartholomew's
10 Mar 2017
We'd like to say a massive thank you to fundraising superstar Louise who's raised £2,008 to date with a monthly pub quiz at the Elderfield Pub in Hackney.
Louise (pictured centre) is donating the funds to Barts Breast Assessment Centre, as one of her good friends was treated at St Bartholomew’s and she knows many people who've been assessed at the centre. In the UK roughly 150 people are diagnosed with breast cancer every day, making it the most prevalent form of cancer.
Our Fundraising Administration Manager Tom Citroen - a regular at the quiz - said: "Louise’s dedication for raising funds for the Breast Assessment Centre at Barts is inspirational and she is a natural born quizmaster. We’re so grateful to Louise and everyone at The Elderfield for continuing to hold the best pub quiz in London!"
As well as Louise, we’d also like to say thanks to the landlords of The Elderfield – Steve and Joyce – and all those who donate prizes to the quiz.
We're shining a spotlight on the winners of the Barts Charity awards at last month's Barts Health Hero Awards ceremony.
The 9th March is World Kidney Day, aiming to increase awareness of the importance of our kidneys and reduce the impact of kidney disease worldwide.
