Virtual Online Event

Virtual online events are a great way of socialising and keeping in touch with friends and family, especially during times of social distancing.

You can easily livestream an event or meetup from a phone or tablet using Zoom or Facebook Messenger Rooms. If you are more tech-savvy, platforms like Twitch can be used and linked to a JustGiving page to collect donations.

There are no limits to what you can do: quizzes, scavenger hunts, gaming nights are all popular choices, but most fundraising events that would previously have taken place at a physical location can be adapted to take place online. It just takes a little extra thought and planning to transform it a virtual event.
