Pubs join forces to break a World Record

At 7.30pm on Sunday 7 February 2016, thousands of pub quizzers, pub regulars, friends and family will be sitting down in their local to answer the first in a series of questions of an identical pub quiz, in an attempt to break the official Guinness World Record for the largest multi venue quiz.

The idea is the brainchild of PubAid, the organisation dedicated to highlighting the great work pubs in the UK do for charity, who have partnered with JustGiving, the world’s leading online fundraising platform to break a World Record.

Co-founder of PubAid, Keith Knowles, commented: “We’re sure we can beat the record, but more importantly, our aim is for each pub to use the quiz evening as a great method of raising money for charity and spreading the word about the great work pubs do every year for good causes.”.

Anne-Marie Huby, managing director and co-founder of JustGiving, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with PubAid to help pubs across the UK raise money for great causes. The British Pub is an institution that is perfectly placed to galvanise communities to come together to do good.”

The team are hoping to get more than 1,000 pubs to join forces with them to achieve the World Record.
