Pubs in Peterborough are rounding up the locals and taking part in Pub Aid’s World’s Biggest Pub Quiz on Sunday March 5 to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.
Pubs will be hosting a quiz at 7.30 pm in order to raise money and awareness of prostate cancer, in order to help save men’s lives.
Pete, Landlord of the Crown said: “Everyone loves a pub quiz, so to say our pub has taken part in Pub Aid’s World’s Biggest Pub Quiz is quite something. We hope lots of people will come down and take part and support the event. I’m sure some rounds will get competitive!
“We wanted to take part and help raise money for Prostate Cancer UK because it’s a worthwhile cause.”
Pub Aid and the largest men’s health charity in the UK, Prostate Cancer UK, are calling on the pub industry, including clubs, bars and venues, to host a quiz and raise money for charity.
All pubs will be sent a quiz pack when they sign up, and those raising money for Prostate Cancer UK will receive dedicated fundraising support and the opportunity to kit their pub out with “Man of Men” pin badges, collection tins and posters.
Over 11,000 men die from prostate cancer in the UK each year. That’s one man every hour. Money raised through this partnership will help fund ground-breaking research, support men and their families affected by the disease, and fight injustice in care.
Co-founder of Pub Aid, Des O’Flanagan, commented: “The quiz is a great way of recognising the fabulous work that UK pubs do for charity in raising over £100 m a year. We’re delighted to be partnering with Prostate Cancer UK who have recognised that great British pubs are places to get their message heard and been enthusiastic supporters of the role the pub plays in the fabric of our communities.”
