This is your chance to bring joy! Create a quiz - a different one for each monthly meeting - for the volunteer socials. It will be part of a 45 min social and will be optional and used as either a social prop for those of us that are shy or as a team building tool for those of that want to make friends as part of our volunteering.
The quiz format is up to you but needs to be accessible. There will be a whole host of interests amongst our volunteers - some might not have been to the Harris before and some wont have any previous knowledge of Preston. Moving around the building or around the outside of the Harris will be fine too - entirely up to you! Will need to be a part of the 45 min social rather than take up the whole time.
Hopefully 2 people will come forward to be masters of the quiz so you wont be alone and can use each other as a sounding board/guinea pig!
Spending a couple of hours per month to create a quiz for the benefit of others.
