Well, they always say that charity begins at home, but in this case, charity can begin at the pub quiz. I had an email earlier this week from Jacqulyn Bell, asking me if I could help publicise the World’s Biggest Pub Quiz. If you’re a regular on the IQAGB forum then you’ll already be well aware of this event. However, for those of you who aren’t , here goes.
To quote from the press release : -
“On 25 March 2010 the Family Holiday Association will be attempting to SMASH the record for the World’s Biggest Pub Quiz! Thousands of people around the UK will be taking part. Get your local pub or venue involved and help make this the LIVE event of the year! It’s a great opportunity to raise loads of cash to help the UK charity Family Holiday Association give severely disadvantaged children a much-needed family break”
The questions will be set by the IQAGB – the British arm of the International Quiz Association, and believe me, they know their onions !
Registration has been made simple. In fact, if you can see your way to clear to getting an event going for the evening, then you can even register online at
While we’re on the subject, you can pick up a handy organiser guide online too from
The way I see it is that the humble pub quiz has a long and very honourable history of support for charities in this country, and so this seems to me to be a good thing to get involved in. If you want to learn a little more, then check out this website
