What is the World’s Biggest Pub Quiz about?
The World’s Biggest Pub Quiz was launched by PubAid in 2016 and has since raised more than £750,000 for hundreds of charities and good causes.
In May 2022, PubAid is partnering with Shelter, Shelter Scotland and Shelter Cymru to deliver the Quiz. It is completely free for pubs to run and gives them a fun event for their customers, while also raising money for charity.
Pubs are encouraged to raise money for Shelter, Shelter Scotland and Shelter Cymru but have the freedom to support other charities. A number of pubs choose to divide funds between the official charity partner and a cause of their choice.
What is PubAid?
PubAid was founded in 2009 by a number of senior pub industry figures, who work with the press, broadcast media, social channels, MPs and others to promote pubs as a force for good in their communities.
Pubs provide invaluable financial, practical and emotional support for a range of charities, good causes and local people. Licensees, their teams and customers raise more than £100 million every year for charity and donate a further £40 million in funds or in-kind support to grassroots sports.
PubAid runs the annual Community Pub Hero Awards, recognising those pubs which provide vital support for their communities, particularly during the recent lockdowns, and an Annual Corporate Charity Fundraiser award for pub companies and breweries who support charities and good causes,
