The 24th Annual Christmas Quiz 2018

 

A Message from Tony Heslop, Quiz Organiser

 

We hope you enjoyed the mental stimulation over the festive season.
You may be pleased to hear we have raised over £6,000 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


There were twenty-nine totally correct entries; and there were nearly two hundred with only one wrong or spelling mistakes.  ( so 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 £10.

 

The winners names are :-

 

 

 

Mrs. Sue Bradbury

Gamlingay

 

 

 

Mrs. Carol Davey

Haywards Heath

 

 

 

Mr. Barry Freeman

Sandy

 

 

 

Mrs. Carol Godden

Mr. Robin Haseldine

Mrs. Wendy Watmough

Mrs. Claire Wells

Thank you again for helping us raise money for charity and hope you will look out
 for the next quiz which will be our 25th and should be available in November!

Best wishes for a Happy New Year

Thank you again for your support
