Mancmillan Cancer Support to attempt charity quiz world record with Norfolk groups and businesses

A Norfolk charity is attempting to set a new world record for the most simultaneous quizzes ever held.

Macmillan Cancer Support is looking for local groups and businesses across the county to host a 'Mammoth Quiz' on Friday, February 24.

The charity hopes the quiz night will not only raise funds for its cancer services, but also make it into the Guinness Book of Records.

Macmillan's fundraising manager for central and North Norfolk, Max Griffiths, said: 'We are really excited about our Mammoth Quiz and we are hopeful lots of businesses and organisations will sign up to take part to help us set a world record 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.

'And let's face it – most of us like the chance to show off our general knowledge skills.'

Locally Macmillan already funds community nurses, specialist nurses, information services and grants to those living with cancer.
