Hollywood superstar Gerard Butler is urging women across Scotland to come together to raise vital funds for a children’s charity.

The Paisley-born actor will join a whole host of other famous famous for Children’s Hospices Across Scotland’s The Big Girly Quiz.

The online fundraiser will be streamed live on Facebook on June 5 and replaces the charity’s ladies lunches and annual Rocking Horse Ball, which have all been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Butler, who last appeared on the big screen in Angel Has Fallen, will be joined by comedian Fred MacAulay.

Britain’s Got Talent star Edward Reid will host the event.

Butler said: “I know it’s hard for everybody just now but especially for charities who rely on donations. 

“Chas is a beautiful organisation that provides palliative care, family respite and support throughout Scotland and right now those families are needing your help more than ever. 

“So on Friday, June 5, Chas will host its first ever Big Girly Quiz on Facebook Live. 

“We will challenge you on all your knowledge of movies, music, fashion and so much more, so get a group of your friends together, virtually of course, and join me and other surprise guests on the night. 

“Together we can really get through this.”

Like many other charities in the current pandemic, Chas has had to dramatically transform the way in which it operates. 

While both Rachel House in Kinross and Robin House in Balloch are continuing to provide end of life care, the charity has also set up the UK’s first ever virtual children’s hospice to support families who are having to completely self-isolate. 

Now in its second month, the virtual hospice offers extensive support to families by phone and video on clinical guidance, financial advice and bereavement support. 

Chas family support teams also offer a range of interactive activities, art clubs, storytelling and friendship calls to children and parents.
