An online quiz run by a property industry charity is taking place next month.

The Midlands Property Quiz will raise funds for LandAid’s new ‘Covid-19 Emergency Fund’ which has so far handed out almost £650,000 in grants.

The charity was set up in 1986 by a group of surveyors after being inspired by the Live Aid concert a year before.

It works to improve the lives of children and young people in the UK who experience disadvantages due to their economic or social circumstances.

The money from its new fund is supporting a variety of emergency projects involving temporary accommodation, food and mental health support.

The quiz is being hosted by Midlands comedian and presenter Nick Hancock with Birmingham radio personality Ed James co-hosting proceedings and interviewing guests.

There will be eight rounds of eight questions, including West Midlands general knowledge, music lyrics, a picture round, local history and inventions, TV, sport and culture.

LandAid chief executive Paul Morrish said: “LandAid is hugely thankful for the support of the Midlands Property Quiz and the West Midlands Growth Company during these difficult times.

“We are all having to adapt quickly to this new normal but it is thanks to innovations such as this that LandAid continues to be able to support young homeless people in the West Midlands and the wider UK throughout this time.

“So far, the Covid-19 Emergency Fund has given out nearly £650,000 in grants right across the UK including local charity St Basils which has received two grants of £10,000 to support their young residents through this crisis.

“Thank you for your support.”

The quiz is being supported by the West Midlands Growth Company and sponsors Argent, Bruntwood, CoStar, Fazenda, Logicor, Mott MacDonald and Shakespeare Martineau with media support from BusinessLive and BirminghamLive publisher Reach plc.

The quiz takes place on July 2 from 8pm to 10pm on the Kwizzbit platform – click through here to take part. If you would like to donate to the charity’s Covid-19 Emergency Fund visit the LandAid website here.
