All pubs will be sent a quiz pack when they sign up, at no cost to them, with everything needed to host a successful event. Each pub is to choose a charity of choice to support, and those unsure are encouraged to partner with Prostate Cancer UK.
Co-founder of PubAid, Des O’Flanagan, said: “The quiz is a great way of recognising the fabulous work that UK pubs do for charity in raising over £100m 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.”
This is the third year that PubAid — the group dedicated to highlighting the great work UK pubs do for charity — has run the event, and this year promises to be the biggest yet, having enjoyed great support from large to small pub companies, as well as hundreds of individual operators.
James Beeby, director of fundraising at Prostate Cancer UK, said: “We are thrilled to partner with PubAid for the second year and have already seen over a thousand pubs signed up to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.
“Our number of ‘pop-up’ pubs, known as the Men United Arms, is growing rapidly, so it made sense to link up with PubAid again to reach even more publicans and consumers with a message about prostate cancer, and to raise money to fight the disease, which kills one man every 45 minutes in the UK.”
