How much is a ticket and what are the events fundraising for?
Launchpad’s Quarantine Quiz is £5.98 per household to enter.
The event will not only challenge your brain and provide some pre-weekend entertainment – with every question you answer you’ll be raising vital funds for extremely vulnerable people in Reading during the pandemic too.
All funds raised from the quizzes will go towards Launchpad’s COVID-19 emergency appeal – so our staff can continue providing Launchpad clients, and the local community, vital help and resources during this crisis. That support includes daily welfare phone calls; the delivery of food, toiletries and cleaning supplies; placing rough sleepers in Launchpad supported housing; or our ‘here for you’ telephone service for absolutely anyone in need.
Is the quiz family-friendly?
The level of questions are best suited to adults but families are, of course, welcome to join!
How do I access the quiz?
You will receive a confirmation email after registering – which instructs you to visit Zoom and set up an account (if you don’t already have one).
Then, 24 hours before the event, you will receive an email with the meeting ID and password. Please check your email and junk mail to ensure you have received it!
On the night, simply click ‘join a meeting’ just before 8pm, enter the meeting ID and password and away you go!
