Phil Tufnell to host an online general knowledge quiz to help children with brain injury

FORMER England Cricketer, Phil Tufnell, is set to host an online general knowledge quiz to raise funds for The Children’s Trust, the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury.

The quiz is being hosted on the charity’s official Facebook account and will be streamed live at 7.45pm on Friday 26 June.  Players are asked to donate what they can, with all the money raised going towards the charity’s special appeal to recoup some of the much-needed funds lost during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Phil Tufnell, who is also an Ambassador of The Children’s Trust, said:

“I’m delighted to host a quiz for The Children’s Trust, especially at such a crucial time. My wife Dawn and I have been involved with the charity for many years and we’ve been amazed at what they do for children with brain injury. They need our help, now more than ever, so pencil it in your diary and gather your friends and family. It’s all for a fantastic cause!”

Dalton Leong, Chief Executive of The Children’s Trust, added:

“To keep our vital services running, we need to raise £7 million a year. The COVID-19 crisis has hit our fundraising hard. We’re having to find alternative ways to raise money, so we’re extremely grateful to Phil for giving his time to support our work.”

Every year more than 40,000 children in the UK are left with a brain injury as a result of an accident or illness. To support the charity’s special appeal, visit: https://www.thechildrenstrust.org.uk/other-support
