Catherine Moore who is raising money for Macmillan is hosting a quiz this Sunday at the Scillonian Club and taking part in the Bristol Half Marathon later in the year.

A local resident here in the Isles of Scilly is raising money this summer for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Catherine Moore will be hosting a quiz this Sunday at the Scillonian Club and will be taking part in the Bristol Half Marathon in September to raise money for the charity. 

She decided to raise money in memory of her grandfather and told Will: "My grandpa when I was younger was really poorly with cancer and Macmillan were the nurses that really looked after him and they were the support for the family and helped us get through it together." 

Catherine has already reached her goal of £300 but is now aiming to reach somewhere between the £800 and £1000 mark. 

The quiz starts at 8:30pm this Sunday and costs £1 to enter. Heckling or trying to use a mobile phone during this quiz will result in a £1 fine with the proceeds going to Macmillan.

There will also be a raffle with lots of prizes donated by various local businesses.

Full details on the quiz can be found here and you can go to Catherine's Just Giving page here and listen to the full interview below.
