St Ives Liz’s Quizzes has raised more than £980 for a variety of good causes since quiz mistress Liz Noall took her usual pub events online. And this Wednesday the total is set to pass £1,000!

Proceeds from the latest quiz, on Saturday evening, went to the National Animal Welfare Trust, which has a centre at Wheal Alfred, Hayle.

Other groups to benefit have been Help Them Help Us (a charity supporting frontline NHS workers), Cinnamon Trust, Cancer Research UK, MIND, the Alzheimers Society, Hayward House Hospice, Nottingham, St Ives Community Food Group, and the Wave Project.

As news of the virtual quizzes gathers pace, not just in St Ives but further afield, too, Liz was interviewed by James Churchfield on BBC Radio Cornwall’s Breakfast Show.

She explained how she was always looking for inspiration for new subjects for her quizzes. “I never switch off from it,” said Liz. “I’m always on the lookout for questions. I want to keep it fresh and interesting.”

Of the quizzers she used to meet at her weekly get-togethers, she said: “I miss them all. That’s why I thought of the online quizzes. I love to do quizzes, but I do miss the people.”
