Birthday Quiz – You’re Invited!

We love a quiz. Every year we come back around to planning the birthday event and wonder what we could do? We always gravitate back to the quiz, because it’s fun. A great evening with friends. A chance to argue, debate, change our minds and agree. Hosted by the legendary Phil Watson in Liverpool where the Be One Percent journey started. 100% of ticket sales (minus eventbrite fees) will go to projects which help the world’s poorest people.

In conversation with Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow

Did you miss out on our very first ‘in conversation with’ event?

Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow joined us over Zoom to discuss his pathway to Mary’s Meals, a charity which feeds 1.6 million of the world’s poorest children in schools around the world every day, as well as global hunger with food security expert and Be One Percent chair Professor Bob Doherty.  

You can watch the full fascinating discussion below.

Our Covid-19 Update

The uncertainty of the past six months has affected us all in different ways. We noticed a slight drop in donations from August, so have made the decision to top-up any grants which fall below £6,500 with funds accrued from our businesses sponsors. We’re tightening our belt even further for the rest of the financial year so the people in the world’s poorest communities who we work with don’t have to.

We’re also being flexible with our calendar, working with our partners to adapt any projects which may need to be changed due to the pandemic.

We remind our members that they can adjust their donation at any time by contacting us if they find their circumstances have changed.
