About Our Quiz Night

Back in 2021 we embarked on a journey to start raising money by hosting a virtual quiz night in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. After the amazing success of this quiz night, I wanted to do something a little better which is when The Big Family Quiz 2023 was born. Come and join us for our first hybrid event taking place both in person and streamed around the world raising valuable funds to support the amazing work that Macmillan do.

The Macmillan Cancer Support charity has played a huge part in my family’s life over the past few years. With an ill grandad who benefited massively from the charity during his battle with this horrible disease. We have donated to the charity a lot recently and after the passing of my grandad nearly a year ago it’s time to do something bigger and better to support a case which is helping millions of people across the UK. 

Me and my family cannot thank Macmillan enough for the amazing work they do day in, day out for people fighting cancer and supporting their families as well. 

Please share and get as many people as possible involved with our Big Family Quiz Night to raise as much money as we can to support this amazing charity.
