A Bolton charity has teamed up with a quiz app in a new fundraising effort to help tackle homelessness in the region. 

Backup North West has launched a collaboration with Funday Quiz to create a new fundraising scheme to tackle homelessness among young people in Bolton and the rest of Greater Manchester.

Award-winning charity Backup provide fully furnished accommodation and multiple services across Bolton to support young people aged 16 to 25 who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness.

Fundy Quiz will create a new stream of much-needed income for the charity alongside a calendar of events including B-FEST on Saturday, July 13 at Bolton Arena.

Backup is also on the lookout for businesses across the North West to join its network of "Guardians" including Bury-based companies This Creative and Veny Limited.

Lee Benjamin, director of Veny Limited, added: ”The work that Backup do has a massive positive impact on the young adults they house and support.

"I am pleased Veny can play a part in supporting a great charity."

The charity has also launched a partnership with Fundy Quiz, which puts participants in for a chance to win cash prizes, all while supporting Backup.

People can take part in the quiz with a £5 donation gaining access to the 25-question quiz.

A new quiz launches every Monday ready for people to challenge themselves, friends or in the workplace.

Not only do participants stand a chance to win cash prizes, but they are also directly supporting Backup's efforts to assist young homeless individuals.

"Knowing what Backup do for a young person who is homeless is the exact organisation that we wanted to sponsor.
