Announcing details of the event, Shirley O’Shea, from the Fundraising Committee of Waterford Healing Arts Trust (WHAT), said “We’re looking forward to a great night at our annual fundraising quiz.  Being the eve of Valentine’s Day, we’ll have an extra frisson of romance and fun, with lots of prizes, including €100 for the winning team.  It’s not too serious: If you don’t have a date, just bring a friend or three and come and join us for an enjoyable social evening and help us raise funds for this great cause.  Waterford Healing Arts Trust runs a wide range of arts programmes at University Hospital Waterford which contribute to the health and wellbeing of patients and their families.  We’re fortunate to have this wonderful organisation here in Waterford, so let’s do all we can to support them.  Our sincere thanks to all the team at The Cove Bar for their invaluable support”.

Tom Drohan, Manager of The Cove Bar, added “We’re delighted to host this fun quiz night in aid of Waterford Healing Arts Trust on Valentine’s Eve.  We all know the great work that WHAT does for the people of Waterford, so we’re looking forward to welcoming a big crowd and raising funds for this cause that’s close to all our hearts”.
