When you all can’t be in the same place, host a virtual quiz night on a video conferencing platform like Skype or Zoom. Instead of an entry fee, create a JustGiving fundraising page and encourage your guests to contribute with a donation to take part.
How it works
Here’s your fool-proof step-by-step guide:
Step 1 – find somewhere to host your quiz. You could ask a local pub or community hall if you can host a charity quiz on a quiet night of the week, or ask if you can host an already popular quiz night at your local pub. Ask the venue if they have a PA system. If it’s in the office or at home, a microphone and speaker will help ensure you are loud enough for all to hear
Step 2 – have a suggested donation for entry per individual or per team
Step 3 – pick a date and time that works for your guests, send them invites and promote your event
Step 4 – come up with some round ideas and questions. It helps to know your audience. Some players will love rounds of obscure head-scratching questions, but others will just tune out! Keep knowledge general and broad if you’re expecting lots of people you don’t know. You can find questions by sifting through trivia books or looking at quiz question sites online. Remember to triple check your answers! Need a little help? See our ready-made question slides templates
Step 5 – consider a prize for the winning team. Ask around local pubs, restaurants and businesses to see if they can donate prizes in return for publicity
Step 6 – host your Big Rhino Quiz and have lots of fun!
Step 7 – create a JustGiving fundraising page for anybody who is unable to make it so they can still contribute! If you can, follow up your guests afterwards to thank them and include a link to your fundraising page to ask for any extra contributions
