On Sunday March 5 2017, PubAid and the largest men’s health charity in the UK, Prostate Cancer UK, are calling on the pub industry, including clubs, bars and venues, to host a quiz and raise money for charity.
Over 11,000 men die from prostate cancer in the UK each year. That’s one man every hour. Money raised through this partnership will help fund ground-breaking research, support men and their families affected by the disease, and fight injustice in care.
Co-founder of PubAid, Des O’Flanagan, commented: “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, commented: “We are thrilled to partner with PubAid who have been celebrating the success of pubs raising millions of pounds for great causes since 2009. We have a growing number of ‘pop up’ pubs known as the Men United Arms so 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 – which affects 1 in 8 men in the UK.”
