Saturday 16th May, 8.00pm
Following on the heels of our Easter balloon race, our next great lockdown fundraiser will appeal to all those who love trivia and general knowledge quizzes. We are holding a giant virtual pub quiz at 8.00pm on Saturday 16th May using the popular Zoom video communication platform.
Just like a real pub quiz, our giant quiz will feature ten rounds of general knowledge, history, trivia and others and will include picture and music rounds. There will be wide variety of questions to appeal to all age groups and abilities. So, if you are missing stretching your brain to find an answer that is on the tip of your tongue while enjoying a pint in your local, why not join the fun. We’ll provide the brain teasing questions, you’ll just have to provide your own liquid refreshment.
Most importantly, by taking part you will be helping is to support our two family homes in Belarus. These homes, Rodni Kut and Family Home 2000 provide a loving family environment for 8 young adults with profound disabilities and learning difficulties. It is absolutely essential that we are able to see them through the current crisis and thereby prevent the residents from having to be moved back to an institution. Please help by taking part in our giant quiz and as well as having some fun, you know you will be doing your bit to support our two lovely families.
