SCORES of pubs in the Portsmouth area will be taking part in the World’s Biggest Pub Quiz in aid of Prostate Cancer UK next week.
This year’s quiz will see more than 1,500 pubs, bars, and clubs across the country take part.
The annual event, organised by industry group PubAid, has raised more £405,000 for hundreds of charities over the last three years.
Co-founder of PubAid, Des O’Flanagan, said: ‘We’re delighted with the response to the quiz so far, and we’re confident more pubs will register before March. The quiz is easy for pubs to host, a lot of fun for the customers who take part, and a great way to support a charity. It’s a genuine no brainer!’
