Hugh said: “It was great to host the Big Quiz for Wessex Cancer Support. We enjoyed six rounds of questions and everyone had a good giggle whilst raising an amazing amount of money to support people locally affected by cancer. It was my pleasure to be involved and thank you to everyone who came out to support the event.” 

All the money raised for Wessex Cancer Support at the event will be used to provide practical and emotional support to anyone affected by cancer in Hampshire, Dorset and the Isle of Wight. 

Hugh will be returning to host the charity’s 2024 Big Quiz on Thursday, October 3.
