Stonegate Managed Sites to host The Big Beat Quiz in support of The British Heart Foundation

Wednesday 6 October at 8pm  

Stonegate Group is hosting The Big Beat Quiz tomorrow, Wednesday 6 October at 8pm, in aid of the British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) 60th Birthday, across its Managed Estate.

Quiz lovers can join in at one of 623 Stonegate’s managed sites nationwide and there is a whopping £2,000 prize on offer to the winning team. It is free to play, but quizzers can donate to the BHF via Stonegate Group’s Just Giving page to lend their much-needed support.

The event will take place via the We Love Quiz platform and will be Stonegate Group’s biggest participation quiz event to date.

Helen Charlesworth, Managing Director of Stonegate Group, said: “We’re so proud of the amazing fundraising achievements of the Stonegate team and our fantastic customers. Seeing the charity events, large and small, take place across the estate has been inspiring. The Big Beat Quiz will be our largest participation event to date, and I can’t wait to see how much we can raise for the British Heart Foundation.”

Since July 2021, Stonegate’s managed pub teams have raised a staggering £160,000 for the BHF. From paddle boarding down the Thames to hosting various events in their pubs, they will continue to fundraise for the rest of this year.

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 pioneer medical breakthroughs which help the 7.6 million people in the UK living with heart and circulatory diseases. 

Paul Davies, Head of Corporate Partnerships at the BHF said: “Stonegate set an ambitious fundraising target for their charity efforts this year and look set to exceed it. The Big Beat Quiz will be a great night and a fantastic opportunity to support the British Heart Foundation.”
