Jamie Parker and Paul Thornley Host “Harry Potter” Quiz to Raise Funds for KIDS Charity

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a Harry Potter fan in possession of Potter knowledge must be in want of a challenge. Potterheads are known for being some of the most competitive fans, so we’ve got an exciting opportunity for you to show off your comprehensive fandom knowledge to your friends and family members.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child stars Jamie Parker and Paul Thornley, who originated the roles of Harry Potter and Ron Weasley, respectively, on the West End, are hosting a new and exclusive Harry Potter quiz that will be free for all interested fans to participate in. With eight rounds of five multiple-choice questions, the quiz will cover all the books in the Potter series. It will be launched on October 10 online.

The quiz is sponsored by KIDS, a charity that provides socio-emotional support for families with disabled children. All funds raised from the quiz will go a long way in providing practical support for their beneficiaries. Hence, even though fans can play the quiz at no charge, all fans are encouraged to donate a small sum for a very good cause. The United Kingdom-based nonprofit organization shares how donations will help:

2020 has been a year like no other. Everyone’s lives have been affected by COVID-19, and a new vocabulary has entered our language. From lockdown to self-isolation, from support bubbles to home-working, life has changed in a way we could not have imagined at the start of the year. It has been the most challenging of times and none more so than for families with a disabled child. Your donations will help KIDS to deliver our services safely and to those who need it most.

We aim to ensure disabled children from birth to 25 have the opportunity to learn, play, build friendships, gain confidence and improve their well[-]being, and we provide vital time, emotional [support] and practical support to parents and siblings. From virtual home learning services to short break provision and specialist adventure playgrounds, KIDS is still here.

Donating to KIDS can be done in two simple ways: Either text HPQUIZ 10 to 70085 to donate £10 (or use 5 for £5, 20 for £20, etc.) or click on the “Donate” button on its website if you are using a credit/debit card.
