International aid charity Care International UK wants pubs to get involved in broadcasting its pub quiz event in aid of women and girls across the globe.

Celebrities including pop singer Jamelia, former Blue Peter​ presenter Konnie Huq and soap star Michelle Collins will present the A Quiz Night Out​ programme.

The quiz can be played in pubs at any point during 4-12 March 2019, to coincide with International Women’s Day on 8 March.

It is part of the charity’s #March4Women campaign, a global movement for gender equality throughout the month of March.

Jaega Wise, head brewer at Wild Card Brewer and British Guild of Beer Writers’ Brewer of the Year, which is hosting the quiz, said the brewery saw International Women's Day as “a celebration of all the things that can be achieved as women, and a gentle reminder of the distance still left to travel”.

She added: “I would definitely encourage other pubs and breweries to sign up too.”

TV presenter Konnie Huq (pictured) said she was delighted to be part of the venture and explained: “Women and mothers across the world face so many obstacles in life compared to their male counterparts.

“If you’re a pub, please do sign up – and get your locals to have a fun night out while raising money for an important cause.”

Pubs can sign up to take part in the pre-recorded quiz on the Care website​ for free until registration closes on 31 January 2019.

“People love pub quizzes – they bring together friends and communities,” said the charity’s head of events and community fundraising Kathryn Betts.

“This will give pubs an opportunity to draw people in and help raise money for a fantastic cause.”

“Care supports women and girls in some of the world’s most vulnerable places, from conflict-ridden Yemen to refugee camps in Jordan, Bangladesh and Uganda.

“The money raised will go towards our work lifting women and girls out of poverty – a very worthwhile cause for International Women’s Day.”
