The Empire Services Club in Hartington Road, Riversway, is opening its doors to non-members for the quiz on Wednesday 6 March.

Assistant Manager Dave Shepherd said: “Everyone loves a pub quiz, so to say our pub is taking part in PubAid’s World’s Biggest Pub Quiz is quite something.

“We hope lots of people will come down and support the event, which is open to members and non-members for the evening. I’m sure some rounds will get competitive!

“We wanted to take part and help raise money for Prostate Cancer UK because so many men are reluctant to visit the doctor until it’s too late and if this encourages guys to get checked out then it will save lives.”

Over 11,000 men die from prostate cancer in the UK each year. The World’s Biggest Pub Quiz aims to save lives by raising money to help fund research into better diagnosis, treatment, prevention and support for men and their families.

PubAid and Prostate Cancer UK are partnering on the initiative for the third year.

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.”

Gabriella Bailey, Associate Director of Fundraising at Prostate Cancer UK, said: “One man dies every 45 minutes from prostate cancer in the UK. I want to encourage as many pubs, bars and clubs to sign up and take part in the World’s Biggest Pub Quiz, join in the fun and help us to stop prostate cancer being a killer.”
