Worldwide quiz

Test your worldwide wisdom

23rd July 2020

It's fair to say that Friday nights in 2020 changed quite a lot for most of us. Thanks to lockdown, they were no longer spent out with friends, catching the latest blockbuster at the cinema or out for a romantic dinner - instead, we were forced to take our social lives online. The phrase 'pub quiz' took on a completely different meaning, as they turned into virtual Zoom-only, 2D events.

At Worldwide Cancer Research we have been no different. Recently, one of our Supporter Experience team members put together an awesome quiz, where each answer was a country in which we are currently funding lifesaving cancer research.
