Mark Bonnar, star of Guilt, Line of Duty, Shetland and smash new show Quiz, is hosting a charity quiz night raising money for national charity Heart Research UK.
Mark, who became a patron of the charity last year, will quiz viewers on subjects including sport, film and TV and music on Heart Research UK’s YouTube channel at 8pm on Wednesday the 6th of May.
Mark will also be taking over Heart Research UK’s Facebook page to chat live with participants and host a live Q&A after.
Heart Research UK are asking for donations if players quiz along at home, with all the money supporting the charity’s pioneering medical research into the prevention, treatment and cure of heart disease.
Mark first became involved with Heart Research UK in 2018, producing a piece of original artwork that was auctioned as part of the charity’s anonymous heART project.
Since then, he has been involved with various campaigns, including Heart Research UK’s Heart of Scotland appeal, a dedicated fundraising campaign to raise money to take on Scotland’s biggest killer – heart disease.
Mark Bonnar said:
“In the uncertain times that we find ourselves in, it’s really important that we try and have a bit of fun, as well as giving something back. That’s why I’m so delighted to be hosting this quiz – I’ve dreamt up some devilish questions so you best be on top form!
“The work that Heart Research UK does is incredibly close to my heart. My father had a triple bypass over 20 years ago, and thankfully he is still going strong.
“The advances in research and surgery over the last few decades have been truly remarkable, thanks in no small part to the vital work that charities such as Heart Research UK are doing.”
Kate Bratt-Farrar, Chief Executive of Heart Research UK, said:
“I’m sure we’ve all done a virtual quiz or two over the last few weeks, but Mark Bonnar’s big quiz for Heart Research UK promises to be one of the best!
“We can’t wait to see what Mark has up his sleeve for the quiz – I’ve been told there may be a few surprises but I won’t give any answers away.
“This is obviously a difficult time for everyone, and charities are no exception. We’re hoping that this will be a really enjoyable evening for everyone, which also helps us raise some much needed funds to help us take on heart disease, the nation’s single biggest killer.
“We hope to see you all there!”
