Harrogate club to host World's Biggest Pub Quiz

Harrogate club to host World's Biggest Pub Quiz

Published at 7:01am 3rd February 2017.

Bilton Working Men's Club in Harrogate is rounding up its regulars for a charity event to help save lives.

It will be taking part in PubAid's World's Biggest Pub Quiz to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.

More than 11,000 men die from prostate cancer in the UK each year, which is one man every hour.

Money raised at the event will help fund groundbreaking research, support men and their families affected by the disease and fight "injustice" in care.

Alan Huddart, treasurer of Bilton Working Men's Club, said: "Everyone loves a pub quiz, so to say our pub has taken part in PubAid'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 everyone knows a family which has been touched by cancer, but prostate cancer is eminently detectable and treatable."

PubAid and Prostate Cancer UK are calling on other clubs, bars and venues to get involved in the fundraising campaign.

Des O'Flanagan, co-founder of PubAid, said: "The quiz is a great way of recognising the fabulous work that UK pubs do for charity in raising over £100 million 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."

James Beeby, Director of Fundraising at Prostate Cancer UK, added: "We are thrilled to partner with PubAid who have been celebrating the success of pubs raising millions of pounds for great causes since 2009.

"We have a growing number of 'pop-up' pubs known as the Men United Arms, so it made sense to link up with industry experts to reach more publicans and consumers with a message about prostate cancer, and to raise money to fight the disease - which affects 1 in 8 men in the UK."

The World's Biggest Pub Quiz will take place at Bilton Working Men's Club at 7.30pm on Sunday 5 March.
