Can you be our Masterminds champion?

We would like as many pubs and community groups as possible in our local area take part in the MasterMinds challenge and host a quiz night any time during June, July or August to help raise money for the important work we do.

All those taking part will receive a fundraising pack which includes quiz questions (should you need them!), posters to advertise their quiz, balloons and collection pots. Those taking part will also be entered into a league table for some friendly competition, with a Masterminds trophy for the pub or community group who raises the most money.

Once the quizzes are up and running we will be posting details of them here so do check-in to find your closest quiz.

MasterMinds is a really fun and simple way to support local people who are struggling. Many people think that if they raise money for the national charity Mind that it will get filtered down to us locally but that’s not the case. So something like £152 being raised from one quiz night could pay for six sessions of counselling for someone who really needs it. This type of money makes a real difference to us and the people we support.

For more information or if your pub or community group would like to take part in MasterMinds, simply email Jenny at or call 01206 764600.
