The 25th Annual Christmas Quiz 2019

 

A Message from Tony Heslop, Quiz Organiser

 

Thank you for supporting our Charity Quiz

 

We hope you enjoyed the mental stimulation over the festive season. I’m sorry if you were not one of the winning entries, but I hope you enjoyed the challenge.
You may be pleased to hear we have raised over £5,000 for charity this year through the Quiz.
Thank you also for all the kind comments about the Quiz.

Remember if you nominated on your entry form one of the named charities we are supporting this year,
i.e. ‘St Johns Hospice, Moggerhanger’, ‘MacMillan Cancer Support’ or Other Charities supported by Rotary, they will receive all of your £2 donation.

Answers are listed further down this page.

This year we had a record number of entries which have now all been marked and rechecked.

A big thank you for supporting our Charities this year by buying a quiz


This year we had a bumper number of entries which have now been marked. There were more than ten totally correct entries.

There were many with only one wrong or spelling mistakes  … I think these can claim a moral victory !

 

In accordance with the rules, as there were more than 10 completely correct entries, 10 were drawn by lot from these, each to win £20.

 

The winners names are :-

 

 

 

C. Harwood

Potton

 

 

 

I. Gary

M. Betteridge

L. Bowyer

Best wishes for a Happy New Year
