27th Annual Christmas Charity Quiz

ANSWERS  & WINNERS

This 2021 quiz has now closed and all entries have been now marked

Thank you all for your support in making our fund-raising efforts a success by buying an entry form for this year’s quiz.

We hope you enjoyed the challenge of this year’s brain teaser.

 

After the very difficult time last year for charity fund raising when we were not able to attend many of the normal selling venues, we are very grateful for your help in getting back to a more ‘normal’ fund raiser for our nominate charities.

You may be pleased to hear we hope to have raised over £5,000 this year through the Quiz.

 

Remember, if you returned your entry form indicating which of the three charities you wanted to support, we will make sure that your entry fee will go to that charity.

 

Thank you also for all the kind comments about the Quiz.

Circumstances permitting, we hope to be back to normal for our 28th Charity Christmas Quiz so look out for it from November onwards.

The selling venues and dates will be published on our website later in the year.

 

The 2021 Quiz theme was:

‘Aquatic & Marine Animals’

… and the supported charities are:

‘St Johns Hospice, Moggerhanger’

‘MacMillan Cancer Support’
