Christmas Quiz for End Polio Now

Have Fun while supporting Rotary’s End Polio Now campaign by entering our Christmas Fun Quiz.  Donate £20 (or more, if you feel like supporting with a larger donation) and we’ll email you a copy of the quiz for every £20.

For the same cost as last year, you get 22% more questions - 100 questions in 9 sections vs. 2021's 82 questions in 8 sections.

Challenge your friends and family - who can get the highest score? Or, even better, get them to make their own donation and receive their own copy of the quiz.

There are NO PRIZES - this is just for your fun and to raise funds for End Polio Now.  Answers will be published just before Christmas and emailed to all participants so you can check how well you did, and enjoy Christmas with the satisfaction not only that you have challenged your knowledge and intellect, but you've made a valuable donation to Rotary's End Polio Now Campaign to rid the world of Polio!

Every donation of £20 is invaluable, funding vaccines for up to 160 children against Polio, and if we can claim Gift Aid on your donation this becomes £25, funding vaccines for up to 200 children.

How can you help?  Get us a Bonus!

Donations on any day are welcome, but donations made via the GlobalGiving website on November 29 generates a bonus!

Instructions on how to donate via GlobalGiving on November 29 are available on the "End Polio Now Instructions page" accessible HERE

If you can, make your donation via GlobalGiving on this special BONUS DAY – November 29

All donations made on  November 29, 2022 are eligible for a share of a “prize” fund of $1,200,000 which it allocates to fundraisers according to the donations they receive that day, so please donate on November 29 if you can - not the days before, and not the days after..  If this year’s bonus is the same as last year at over 30%, your £20 will be worth over £26 (or £31 with Gift Aid).

And another Bonus!

Rotary’s End Polio partners, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, will treble your donation (including the Gift Aid and any GlobalGiving bonus), so if you can add Gift Aid, your £20 donation could be worth £93 to End Polio Now – funding vaccines for over 700 children.

The simplest and easiest way to make a donation of a specified amount is on our website at:
and just clicking or pressing one of the buttons which will take you to a GlobalGiving donation page with your payment amount prefilled, and where you can register your details and make your payment.  PLEASE DONATE ON November 29 to enable us to win as much of the $1.2 mils. Bonus as possible.

Don't forget to provide your email address on the Global Giving website when donating so we can email you the Quiz sheets!.
