We're so excited to come together to test our general knowledge (or perhaps just our lucky guesses) with our first ever virtual quiz!
Event date: Friday 10 July
Time: 7:30pm - 9pm
Location: Your home! We will be running this quiz using Zoom and KwizzBit
Ticket price: £5 per smartphone
Prize: £30 Waitrose / John Lewis voucher
What you will need
We are running this virtual quiz by using the video calling application Zoom, and an amazing quiz website called KwizzBit. To join in our quiz you will need two separate devices:
- A device you can use Zoom on - usually a desktop, laptop or tablet
- A device which you can view the KwizzBit website to answer our quiz - we would recommend using a smartphone but a tablet would also work
You will need to set up a free account with Zoom and with KwizzBit in advance, so that you're ready on time to begin the quiz! Please note, however you set up your account name on Kwizzbit is how your name will appear on the quiz leader board.
How the quiz will work
Forget pens and pencils - your smartphone will record all your answers for you!
Everyone who registers to take part will be emailed the details of how to join the Zoom quiz. Once everyone taking part has joined the Zoom meeting, Quizmaster Karen will tell everyone the code for entering the KwizzBit quiz. And then the fun will begin!
Karen will read out the questions, but you will be able to see the questions on your laptop screen too. The quiz is multiple choice, so all you need to do is touch the right answer and KwizzBit automatically marks your answers as right or wrong. But you will need to be quick, as there is a time limit, and bonus points for the 'fastest finger' i.e. the person or team answering first in each round!
At the end of every round, the leader board will automatically update, so you will be able to watch your team's progress.
Who will be the Lymphoma Action quiz champion?! The prize is a £30 Waitrose & John Lewis voucher.
You have two options for entry:
- £5 will enter one smartphone into the quiz. You may want to do this if you want to play as one team with your household.
- Or if you're feeling competitive, you can get a group of your friends and family involved and enter as individuals to compete against each other as well as all of our other team players. If you would like to do this, you will need to pay £5 per person. (If you are using this option, you will only need one device for Zoom per household, and as many smartphones as you have individuals.)
All money raised will go towards helping us continue to deliver our services at this difficult time, when our income has dropped due to COVID-19 and when those affected by lymphoma need us more than ever. Thank you so much for your vital support!
