Teams wanted for online quiz

Winchester Youth Counselling is to hold a second online quiz fundraiser on Friday November 27th, from 6.30-8.00pm.

They promise an hour and a half of fun and a wide range of family quiz questions to raise money for Winchester Youth Counselling. The quiz will be hosted by Gary and Paul live from Fuerteventura.

Visit tinyurl.com/wycquiz2020 for an idea as to how it all works. You will need two devices to be able to play, one to host the zoom call and one to answer the quiz questions.

Put together your best team and visit the website to buy a ticket. You’ll receive a Zoom log in for each team entered.

The organisers will share the questions with you all via Zoom and you will need to download the “speedquizzing” app to your phone to answer the questions. At the end of each round the automated scoreboard will reveal the scores.

There is no prize for first place but there is the spirit of knowing you are helping a worthwhile cause.

As with most charities, the pandemic has derailed the fundraising endeavours of Winchester Youth Counselling. So in order to raise funds they are taking our fundraising online. The charity relies upon fundraising and donations to provide vital services to young people.

Winchester Youth Counselling (WYC) opened its doors in 2003 to provide a safe therapeutic space for young people aged 11-25 who live in the district of Winchester.

Common concerns are issues with self-esteem, panic, depression, self-harm, loss, anxiety, suicidal feelings, transitions, relationship problems and stress.

The aims of the charity are to:

• Enable young people to make informed choices about the way they lead their lives

• Enable young people to live effectively and resourcefully through confidence building and raising self-esteem

• Encourage the autonomy of young people

• Provide means to develop self-understanding in young people

• Help young people improve their relationships

• Promote a sense of physical, emotional and mental well-being.

It is a registered charity and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
