Set a date for your quiz and send invitations to everyone you’d like to come along. Ask the pub if they’d be happy to promote the event to their customers so even more people can get involved. Prepare for your quiz by writing the questions – you could host a round about famous older people in the UK, or theme it around a particular decade for a trip down memory lane.
Find somebody to act as quiz master for the night and ask local businesses if they’d be happy to donate a prize for the winner. You can host your quiz virtually if you’d prefer, using Facebook Live or a video platform like Zoom. Set up a fundraising page for your event and share it with anybody can’t attend.
Why support Independent Age?
The money you raise will support people like Veronica. Veronica is 82 years old and lives in the Southeast of England. She called our Helpline as she was struggling with rising electricity bills. Veronica was relying on extra jumpers when she was cold instead of turning on the heating, to keep down costs.
The Helpline helped Veronica to understand more about the money she was entitled to. Now, Veronica is receiving pension credit. This is a crucial top up for her income.
By fundraising for Independent Age, you will provide a support system for older people going through difficult times.
