Quiz night raises £13,000

Fancy raising £13,000 from one quiz night alone? You'll need a bunch of willing attendees, some fabulous raffle prize donations, and a swear jar...

Six Degrees Group (6DG) raised £13,690 for HOPEHIV at their annual pub quiz. With over 100 employees attending, and a raffle to help boost profits on the night, the night topped their previous year's quiz total by over £1,000! 

The team from 6DG told us how they raised such a phenomenal amount:

'Each team of six paid £250 to enter the quiz. To help boost profits there was a raffle - prizes included an iPad mini. There was also an auction on the night with items such as a helicopter flights and hotel stays up for grabs. Finally, there was a swear jar which made a significant impact on the overall total! We estimate that the swear jar itself made approximatly £350... Without going into too much detail, more severe words were fined at a higher price!

The quiz itself was made up of several rounds, including music and TV theme tunes. Others included building sports equipment out of pipe cleaners and tricky mind puzzles. The event was for staff and suppliers so was mainly advertised internally although external guests were more than welcome. The night was such a success because everyone at 6DG has seen how much amazing work HOPEHIV have done in Sub-Saharan Africa so at events like this they are always happy to show their support. All of the money raised was matched by 6DG - so £6,845 was raised on the night and then doubled by 6DG.'
