Children’s charity Action Medical Research will be holding its very first virtual quiz on Tuesday 7 April.
‘Let’s Get Quizzical’ will be presented by ‘Your Magical Host’, Ascot entertainer Paul Martin.
“I can’t wait!”, says Paul. “I’ve worked with Action for a number of years now hosting various fundraising events across the South East.
“It’s a fantastic charity and I am so proud to continue my support for Action in the virtual world. I think it’s going to be a lot of fun for all the family and I hope lots of people will tune in.”
With a background in stand-up comedy, magic, and mind reading Paul Martin offers a combination of professional event hosting and After Dinner entertainment.
A member of the world-famous Magic Circle and awarded a Silver Star, Paul is considered by his contemporaries among the most influential in the corporate magic scene.
The quiz will include five general knowledge rounds, with some fantastic magic tricks thrown in for good measure!
There won’t be any prizes available, but families are invited to take part for bragging rights and a fun night in!
Supporters will be able to watch the quiz on the ‘Let’s Get Quizzical’ Facebook Event page from 7.30pm.
There is a suggested donation of £2 which can be made on the quiz’s Just Giving page.
Action Medical Research for children is a UK-wide charity fighting for little lives through funding research.
Sadly, a number of its annual fundraising events have had to be cancelled or postponed over the coming months.
Lewis Coghlin, Director of Fundraising: “Our ability to fund this vital research relies entirely on voluntary support.
“And much of our income comes from events that people take part in. With so many of these events now having to be cancelled, we know we have a big gap to fill, urgently. And so we need your help now more than ever.”
Action Medical Research has been funding medical breakthroughs since it began in 1952 including helping to introduce the first polio vaccines in the UK, developing the use of ultrasound in pregnancy and testing the rubella vaccine.
Action is currently funding research into areas including premature birth, cystic fibrosis, cerebral palsy, brain cancer and some rare and distressing conditions.
