Big Quiz Night 2020 

Raising money for Tearfund

7:30pm Saturday 14th November

The international development charity’s Big Quiz team has put a large amount of work into it in advance - we don’t have to think up questions or worry about what answers to accept! Whilst we’ve all taken part in quizzes recently over video calls, this promises to be a real challenge which we haven’t seen before.
 
Tearfund’s ready-made quiz resources means hosts have everything they need to hold a quiz online, including questions suitable for all ages and teams, large or small.
 
‘The annual Big Quiz Night is a great opportunity to bring people together and put your knowledge to the test,’ said Tearfund’s Global Fundraising Director, Jane Pleace. ‘We are thankful that so many supporters continue to walk with us as we help some of the world’s most disadvantaged people.’
 
Money raised will go to help change the lives of people living in poverty - like Alaya, her husband Bazwell and their three young children in Malawi. They rely on growing maize to survive, but the weather patterns that have guided their farming for generations have changed. And it’s putting everyone at risk of sickness and starvation. Frequent flooding brings diseases like cholera and damages their home, washing away what little food they have. With Tearfund’s partner, AG Care, Alaya and Bazwell are learning new ways of working the land under these tough conditions.
