Last night an estimated 30,000 pub goers went to their local to attempt to break the World Record for the largest multi venue quiz in an initiative dreamt up by PubAid and in partnership with the world’s leading online fundraising platform, JustGiving.

Over 1400 pubs signed-up, raising money for over 700 causes. The quiz also attracted support from MPs, with more that 20 of them joining in the fun by taking the role of Quiz Master on the night.

Co-founder of PubAid, Keith Knowles, commented: “We're delighted that so many pubs registered to join in with the Quiz, typifying the spirit that sees UK pubs raising over £100m for charity every year .”

Keith added: “We’re waiting for confirmation that we have broken the record, but in terms of participation numbers, we are hoping that we have more than enough to do it.”

Ross Piggott, of RP Databases, who handled the entries, added: “Early indications show that over 30,000 people took part and over £100,000 has been raised.”
