British Heart Foundation Quiz Help Required

Hi,
As some of you may or may not know, I suffered a heart attack a few years ago at the ripe old age of 50 . Happily I was treated at James Cook hospital in Middlesbrough within an hour and made a full recovery.

Since then I have been organising an annual quiz night to raise money for the British Heart Foundation every February. Along with my family and friends, and the generosity of lots of local businesses who donated raffle prizes, we have managed to make over 2000.00 each year.

I usually set six rounds of ten questions and have them ready in plenty of time before the quiz night. However; because I have been so busy with work, this year I am just starting to set the questions.

I am hoping that all you good Locosters may be able to help me by suggesting some questions in the following categories;

Sport
Science
Music
General Knowledge
Hearts

I also like to finish the night with a round of local interest questions, so if anyone is local to the North East (particularly, Co. Durham), please feel free to add some.

Any other suggestions to help us raise some cash will be gratefully accepted.

Thanks, in anticipation of any assistance.

Jon

Thanks for you attempts so far; I can use some of these. Hopefully as other locosters get home from work we will get some more.

Just a thought, if people would like to hold posting the answers and send them via u2u, I could post the finished quiz on here and if anyone would like to send a donation, think of a way of holding this quiz on LCB. Thoughts anyone?
