GENERAL knowledge supremo and star of television show The Chase Mark Labbett will be quizzing people in Chipping Sodbury this summer.

Mark, the chaser known as The Beast on the hit quiz show, is hosting a fundraising night at Chipping Sodbury Town Hall on Sunday, June 22 (8pm).

As well as asking the questions for teams of up to eight to answer, Mark will challenge the winning quiz team to do battle in a final round at the end of the evening.

The event is in aid of Crohn’s and Colitis UK and is being organised by Yate-based QVC presenter and business owner James Murden.

"As a Crohn's Disease sufferer myself, I know how much of a difficult condition it is to live with,” said James. “People are often embarrassed to talk about it, I'm hoping we can raise lots of money for the charity that have supported my since my diagnosis six years ago.”

There will also be a charity auction and raffle featuring top prizes including many donated by local businesses.

The quiz costs £10 to enter per person, to register visit To donate a raffle or auction prize call 0844 5045004 or email
