Selected Stonegate pubs, located across Surrey and Kent, hosted The Big Beat Quiz in aid of the British Heart Foundation’s 60th birthday.
Quiz lovers were able to join in at one of 623 Stonegate’s managed sites nationwide, and there was a £2,000 prize on offer to the winning team. It was free to play, but quizzers could donate to the BHF via Stonegate Group’s Just Giving page to lend their support.
Stonegate’s managed pub teams have raised £160,000 for the BHF since July 2021.
When the BHF was founded in 1961, 7 out of 10 heart attacks were fatal. Now, at least 7 out of 10 people survive. Funds raised by Stonegate will go towards helping the BHF continue to encourage medical breakthroughs which help the 7.6 million people in the UK living with heart and circulatory diseases.
