Beer Today has teamed up with quiz mistress supreme Liz Angus Noall to present a pub quiz this week. Five questions a day, with answers the following day. Join in with family, friends, and pub buddies!
Liz hosts a number of weekly quizzes, plus a monthly one and various charity quizzes, from her home in St Ives, Cornwall. During lockdown she was named a local hero for keeping us all entertained with regular online quizzes, and raising huge amounts of charity cash.
Since Covid, the fundraising has continued, for both local groups and national charities. At the end of this year her total has passed £17,500! To find out more about Liz and her quizzes — join in when you’re in Cornwall! — visit her Facebook group.
