Kate is urging her constituents take part in the World’s Biggest Pub Quiz, a UK-wide charity event where pubs raise money for good causes such as Action Against Hunger.
The event is the brainchild of PubAid, an organisation established to highlight UK pubs as a force for good in their local communities.
Every year, pubs across the UK raise more than £100 million for good causes and supported grassroots organisations to the tune of £40 million.
Since the World’s Biggest Pub Quiz was launched in 2016, it has raised more than £750,000.
Kate said “The World’s Biggest Pub Quiz is a great way of bringing together people from across the local community, giving them a fun and sociable evening of quizzing, while also raising money for a worthy cause.
“I’d urge people to find a pub near them hosting a quiz and take part as a way of supporting charity and their local.”
This year’s Charity partner, Action Against Hunger, specialises in treating young children facing malnutrition, a disease which is responsible for almost half (45 percent) of all deaths of children under 5. In fact, malnutrition causes more deaths of young children than Malaria, Tuberculosis and HIV combined.
Those pubs choosing to support the charity will be helping to save the lives of children who are facing life-threatening hunger.
Matt White, Director of Fundraising at Action Against Hunger UK said: “We are thrilled to have been chosen as the charity partner for PubAid’s “World’s Biggest Pub Quiz.
“Climate change and conflict has seen global hunger levels grow for the third consecutive year. This is incredibly concerning when you factor in the fact that almost half of all deaths of babies and young children are as a result of malnutrition.
“This is something that we need to be talking about and where better place to start that conversation than down the pub.”
