Christine Cotterill - Cheque Presentation

Quiz Queen Christine Cotterill has reached a new milestone in fundraising for Treetops, by raising over £3,500.

Christine devises quizzes and sells them online – and has quizzers taking part up and down the country. She also does a variety of other fundraising activities and since October 2013 has single-handedly raised over £3,500 for Treetops.

In January, Christine visited Treetops to hand over a cheque for £564.59 raised from her online quizzes and from selling Treetops Christmas cards. Added to the total she has already raised for Treetops, she’s now reached an incredible total of £3,634.15 for the hospice.

Quizzing from Orkney to Jersey

On presenting the cheque to Treetops, Christine said “The quiz sheets are requested by email and I then email a copy and quizzers ‘Pay on Return’. The quiz sheets go all over England, Scotland, a few in Wales and Ireland.  My furthest ‘northern’ quizzer lives in Orkney and my most ‘southern’ quizzer lives in Jersey.  So, it is a good way to raise money for Treetops as there are a lot of quiz addicts out there!

“I hope I can continue handing over cheques to Treetops in the future as you all do a brilliant job!”

The money Christine has raised to date has paid for 21 places for guests at our Day Care Unit.

Jodie Minter, fundraising assistant at Treetops Hospice Care, said “It was such a pleasure to welcome Christine to the hospice again, where she presented us with a cheque for £564.59 following her fundraising over the festive season. We’re so proud of you and your continued support Christine, thank you so much!”
