BoB’s Big Christmas Quiz

BoB’s Big Christmas Quiz! (because “BoB’s Big Free Socially Distanced Family Quiz Review of the Year 2020” was just a bit too much). Settle in for a little family fun as we take a look back at the year most of us would probably rather forget. The volunteers, staff and beneficiaries at Band of Builders have written, produced and starred in the first (and possibly only) official BoB quiz of the year with the same mentality as our projects – get stuck in, do your best and get the job done. We hope you enjoy our first attempt – we’ve tried to make the questions a reflection of world events, quirky news stories and of course BoB projects and fundraisers. Please be kind, every person involved has given their time to make this video for your enjoyment and to spread awareness of Band of Builders. It isn’t perfect, you might find a few small quality issues as all footage was filmed on mobile phones at home after a hard day’s graft, in the van during a break and during the quality family time we all cherish at weekends.

Please share it if you enjoyed it, scroll past if you didn’t, and a Merry Christmas and a safe and prosperous 2021 to everyone from all of us at BoB.
