Celebrities back ‘mighty’ fundraising quiz for Alzheimer’s Research UK

Author: Educare Staffing | Posted: 24th January 2017 | Category: General News

Countdown’s Rachel Riley and actress Ashley Jensen are calling on the public to host their own ‘Mighty Quiz’ and raise money for Alzheimer’s Research UK.

Budding quizmasters will unite teams on 27 April to “tackle trivia, crack conundrums and face physical feats” all in the name of Alzheimer’s research.

Rachel Riley, Countdown star and mathematician, will post eight short Facebook videos to encourage people to host their own Mighty Quiz, posing a new question in each video and asking people to post their answers.

Describing her love of putting her brain to the test, Miss Riley said she “can’t think of a better way to raise money for Alzheimer’s Research UK.”

She added:

“Whether trying to name that tune or sculpt a masterpiece from foil, The Mighty Quiz is a great excuse to get your friends together to tackle trivia and put your senses to the test.

“We need Mighty quizmasters across the nation to get their packs and get organising.”

The Mighty Quiz is no ordinary quiz, with Alzheimer’s Research UK proposing tasks such as spaghetti towers, plank-offs and foil sculptures as fun additions to standard general knowledge rounds, creating a “level playing field” for anyone whose strengths lie outside general trivia.
