Keech Big Virtual Quiz

By taking their pub quiz online, Keech Hospice Care was able to reach 8,000 people - a lot more than can fit in the local pub!

The Challenge

Loss of funding due to coronavirus

As with many charities, the coronavirus pandemic presented a huge challenge to Keech Hospice Care.

Initially, the hospice was concerned that its reserves would be insufficient to sustain it through the lockdown and subsequent social distancing, given that the hospice’s 34 charity shops had been closed and many fundraising events had been cancelled.

The Solution

A virtual evening at the pub

As supporters were anxious about the pandemic, Keech ran a virtual quiz to provide entertainment in exchange for donations.

The event aimed to raise awareness, as well as funds. The virtual quizzers were asked to make a donation of £5, £10 or £20, by text, if they had enjoyed the evening.

What was achieved...

Over £11,000 raised

Supporters were asked to make an optional donation by text to take part.

Series of 4 quizzes

Such was the success of the first quiz, that Keech Hospice Care ran 3 more.

Over 8,000 views

The quizzes were streamed on Facebook Live, with each one attracting thousands of views.

“We had different generations in the same room, all making donations by text. We were surprised by the number of people who chose the higher donation amount.”

Add Text Giving to your virtual event

Text Giving is a perfect donation metric for a virtual event. Supporters can donate from anywhere and don’t even have to click away from their stream to do so.
