MOTHERWELL and Bellshill residents are being encouraged to put their general knowledge to the test by taking part in a fundraising quiz for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The Macmillan Mammoth Quiz will be held in homes, workplaces and clubs all over the UK on Friday, February 22.

And the charity is hoping Times & Speaker readers will get involved by organising their own quizzes.

The 2013 Quiz Pack from Macmillan costs £10 and includes the quiz, fundraising materials, tips for organising your own event and information about Macmillan.

Angela McCormack, the charity’s fundraising manager for Lanarkshire, said: “Here’s your chance to join in a really fun event with your colleagues, friends and family, and at the same time raise money to help people who are experiencing real difficulties living with cancer.

“One in three of us will have a cancer diagnosis at some time in our life, and there are currently two million people with cancer in the UK.

“Ninety-seven per cent of all funds raised go directly to support services, with Macmillan reaching three out of four people living with cancer across the UK.”
