TV and sporting personalities have signed up to take part in Beatson Cancer Charity’s latest fundraising efforts for April including online quizzes and virtual Q&A sessions with local sporting heroes.
So far there have been several hundreds of participants in the weekly Beat the Beatson online quizzes. Joining up with host Andy Dunlop, who created The Stayin’ Inn (Scotland’s first online pub), he delivers 5 rounds of quizzing where you have to do your best to beat the resident Beatson egg-head!
So far nearly £4,000 has been raised and the aim is to double this by end of lockdown period.
