Festive fun and fundraising with Mr and Mrs Hinch
Thursday 17 December saw thousands of households get into the festive spirit with a cracking Christmas quiz hosted by Instagram sensations Mr and Mrs Hinch.
The last of our Secret Santa campaign events saw Action for Children supporters Mr and Mrs Hinch take our eager quizzers through 3 rounds of festive music, movies and trivia and, for ‘Dave’ the duster fanatics everywhere, a round dedicated entirely to them.
We’re so excited to announce that over 17,000 households around the UK took part virtually in The Hinch Christmas Quiz, raising an amazing £31,500 and counting to help make sure more children and young people have a hot meal, a present or a safe place to sleep.
Whether they claimed the trivia crown or their Christmas knowledge still needs a little dusting off, participants all had a fabulous evening.
“Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the Christmas quiz. We have been isolating as me and my partner are clinically vulnerable and my parents also so we haven’t seen them since February. The quiz tonight was just the lift we needed”
Quizzers were also challenged to post their Christmas tree selfies on Instagram for the chance to win a ‘Hinch Home Hamper’, containing all Mrs Hinch’s favourite cleaning products. And we’re pleased to announce that the winner is Jo Halford, who wowed us with their delightfully festive Christmas tree and Henry lookalike!
Thank you so much to everyone who got involved. In taking part you’ve helped to give thousands of children and young people a reason to celebrate this Christmas. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did and that you have a very Merry Christmas!
There’s still time to donate and make sure vulnerable children and young people have a hot meal, a present or safe place to sleep.
