The group is calling on the pub industry to raise money for charity, including clubs, bars, and venues, by holding a quiz on Sunday 5 March 2017.
Participants are invited to sign up, after which they will receive a quiz pack, fundraising support, and a set of pin badges, collection tins, and posters for their venue.
Prostate Cancer UK raises money for research against prostate cancer, which kills 11,000 men per year – one man every hour. Money raised through the quiz partnership will help fund research, and support men and their families affected by the disease.
As part of its fundraising work, the charity has also set up ‘pop up’ pubs named Men United Arms, looking to use pubs and publicans as a way of spreading their message.
Co-founder of PubAid, Des O’Flanagan, said: “The quiz is a great way of recognising the fabulous work that UK pubs do for charity in raising over £100m 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, said: “We are thrilled to partner with PubAid who have been celebrating the success of pubs raising millions of pounds for great causes since 2009. 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.”
PubAid was set up in 2009 to help highlight the work done by UK pubs for charity, including the £100m raised every year by the industry.
