Shine Bright Quiz

    • Quiz

The Shine Bright Quiz is the perfect combination of ready-made fun and fundraising! We’ve made it really easy for you by providing everything you need to run your own quiz. You could host it at home, in a local hall, at work, wherever you like.

We recommend a minimum per person donation of £3 and to boost your fundraising you could add a meal (and charge more!) or hold a raffle or tombola, perhaps sell cakes and sweets? Or, perhaps you’re going away with the family and you need something for a rainy day, or you’ve got friends round for a BBQ - let your imagination loose and jazz up your quiz event!

The Shine Bright Quiz is available as a pdf download. All you have to do is fill in the form below and we will then send you an email link with everything you need to host your quiz event. If you aren’t on email or don’t have a printer at home, perhaps a kind friend, neighbour or family member would help you?

* If downloading is really impossible for you, we can send you a paper pack, but to cover costs, Shine suggests a donation of £3 (+p&p), which can be given over the phone by calling 01733 555988 and asking for the Fundraising Department.
