Not being able to nip to the local for a quiz and a pint (or two) is a downer at the best of times, let alone when there is no end in sight for this lockdown. With millions of us confined to our homes, virtual group activities have been organised and participated in left, right and centre and this Friday 3rd April at 8pm our very own Alex Lister and some celebrity pals will be hosting The Great British Celebrity Virtual Pub Quiz.
Players at home will be grilled by a host of celebs, including legendary quizmaster Jeremy Paxman, James Barriscale from Classic FM, and BBC South East anchor, Rob Smith.
The money raised will go towards supporting frontline NHS workers at the East Kent Hospitals Trust.
Clapping for our heroic NHS workers was uniting and it warmed our hearts, but claps don’t buy them personal protective equipment nor do they provide them with hot nutritious meals to keep them going on their long shifts. This is why we need to keep showing our appreciation in more concrete ways. Those on the frontline are risking their lives to keep us and our loved ones breathing so if you can afford to, please spend the money that you would have otherwise spent at your local on this virtual experience.
The Great British Celebrity Virtual Pub Quiz will be broadcast on Facebook and Youtube. If you want to play and get your answers marked you can register here and pay £15 – if you can’t afford it you are more than welcome to join us and our celebrity guests anyway!
