Winefold Party FAQs

Our Winefold Party pack has everything you need to get the party started. Set a date and invite your guests. We encourage people to host during Winefold Weekend- 21st-23rd September 2018, but if you can’t, don’t worry. Just pick a date that suits you.

Every guest brings a blindfold, a bottle of wine and a donation for the Royal Society for Blind Children. You can simply enjoy lots of different wines with friends, or have a go at the blindfold wine tasting games in your pack. Then, pay your donation in to the RSBC so that we can continue to support blind children and young people.

We hope that most Winefold Parties will be held on Winefold Weekend- 21st-23rd September 2018. But if you can’t host then- don’t worry! Just pick a date that suits you. You could host on a Friday night, a Wednesday night or a Sunday afternoon- the choice is yours.

Do my guests have to bring a certain type of wine?Where can I get wine for my event?

Not at all! Any price or colour of wine is perfect. Please note- if you want to play the Winefold Challenge card game in your pack, you will need a selection of reds, whites and roses. 

I don’t drink alcohol; can I still raise money for RSBC?

Of course! From bake sales to BBQs- with a little imagination there’s no limit to what you can achieve for blind young people. We can help you find a fundraising activity you’re sure to love. Get in touch with us at fundraising@rsbc.og.uk or on 0203 794 8287 to chat about ways we can help. 

I’m under 18; can I still hold an event for RSBC?

It is against the law to supply alcohol anywhere to someone under 18, and hosting a Winefold Party means it is your responsibility to ensure that guests are aged 18 or over. However, there are plenty of other ways you can get involved! Get in touch with us at fundraising@rsbc.og.uk or on 0203 794 8287 to chat about ways we can help.
