Time to register to join charity quiz fun

WITH just under a month to go until the Mammoth Quiz for Macmillan Cancer Support, there is still time for local groups and businesses to register to be part of the event.
The Mammoth Quiz is Macmillan’s nationwide quiz, which has so far raised £68,000 for Macmillan since 2009 and holds the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest simultaneous quiz.
Sally Millington, Macmillan fundraising manager for Ryedale, said: “We are really excited about our Mammoth Quiz and we are hopeful lots of local people will take part to help us make 2013’s quiz the biggest ever for Macmillan.
“The quizzes can be held anywhere, from the local pub or bowling club to a local factory, office or school. It’s a really nice way of raising some money while having fun with friends, family or work colleagues.”
It costs just £10 to register with the money going to Macmillan to help fund vital cancer services. Every person who signs up to host a Mammoth Quiz will be sent a 2013 quiz, fundraising materials, tips for organising a quiz and information about Macmillan.
The Mammoth Quiz takes place on February 22, but Macmillan says organisations can still hold a Mammoth Quiz after the date if they can’t make that time.
