We rely on fundraising as we do not receive any grants and our organisation is run by volunteers. Table quizzes are a great way of raising money, awareness and are lots of fun! If you would like to run a quiz in your own area, we have a handy guide to help you. Register your quiz with us and let us know the date, venue and time - we will help promote it with you. Any money raised can then be lodged to our bank account or via PayPal. NB - you may need a permit from your local Garda Station to collect funds - check with your local station.
For your first quiz start off small, 15 tables max. A venue that’s small enough to feel intimate and so everyone can hear the compere, but large enough that people can move through tables collecting answers.
It depends on how organised you are but can be put together in two weeks. Get venue, get a poster done, send to My Lovely Horse Rescue to promote on our Facebook page, tell everyone you know and get friends to get tables together.
Get all your questions and answers 3 days before quiz is due to start and staple everything the night before.
Thursday nights are great, people have their weekend wind down heads on.
One overall prize for quiz winners (think of something for 4 people, 4 gig tickets, 4 bottles of wine, 4 CDs etc), plus quiz runner up, then about 10 good raffle prizes(gig tickets, booze and vouchers always work well)
VERY IMPORTANT! Volunteers - for your first quiz you’ll need 10 people:
For quiz you will need:
People may question their score after each round, make sure you have all the answers from each round together.
Make sure you count the tables before you start, so when people are collecting answers they know how many they should have.
Raffle – get two raffle books of different colours – CHECK ALL TICKETS BEFORE HANDING OVER PRIZES – really important
Time – it’s the organisers job to move things along and make sure each round doesn’t go over, quiz should be done and dusted in 2 and half hours.
