Wine and Wisdom
Mere Road, Waddington, LN5 9NX
Our popular Wine and Wisdom event is back in Waddington for another year! Now in its 24th year, this is our longest-running Hospice event and has raised thousands over the years to support end-of-life care in Lincolnshire.
Do you think you have what it takes to become our reigning champions? We’re looking for teams of 5-8 people for only £6/head. Included in the ticket price is wine and nibbles for each table and some fantastic prizes for the winners.
Come along and put your knowledge to the test!
Wine and Wisdom originally started in 1996 by widower, John Davey, in memory of his wife, Anne. Anne was admitted to our Inpatient Unit in 1992 after being diagnosed with terminal cancer.
John said, “The Hospice was a truly wonderful place and the people there were incredibly kind. They took such good care of Anne but they also looked after the whole family too.
“I will always remember the night I fell asleep holding Anne’s hand and I awoke to find that a blanket had been placed over me by one of the kind people there. It’s only a small thing but it is something I will never forget and it really meant a lot.
“On Christmas Eve, carol singers were performing in the Hospice. The sound of the music drifted into Anne’s room and the most remarkable thing happened, Anne sat up in bed for the first time in a long time and she sat and sang every carol. For that short time, I had my Anne back. She was just like her old self.
“Wine and Wisdom began as a wonderful way to remember my wife of 29-years and also for our family and friends to remember her too. It also gave us an opportunity to raise money to help other families who need the valuable support of the Hospice.
“I am truly humbled by the amount of money the quiz has raised and it far exceeds any expectations I had. I never expected the quiz to become so popular and I wouldn’t have dared to dream that it would still be going now.
“It’s a lovely lasting tribute to my dearest Anne.”
