25th Anniversary Year Fundraising 


Here are the answers to the first fund-raising quiz of 2014.  Thanks to everyone who bought one, and to those who sent them in, completed or not.  I must apologise for confusing many people with No. 11 – 20.  The answer is Cost of A Second Class Stamp, obviously not correct today, although strangely enough many people got it right!  I inherited this Quiz some years ago from another group of fund-raisers, and I should have checked that none of the answers referred to current costs.  Apologies.  In view of that, I have ignored No 11 and also No 1, which was already done for you, so we are left with 34 questions. 


There were 3 all-correct entries.  After an independent, blind-folded shuffle of these three, the winner was found to be Jan and Mike Simms of West Wickham who will receive the £25 M&S voucher, and because I made such a dog`s dinner of this Quiz,I will be sending a small consolation prize to the other two – Chris and Charlie Young of Orpington and Morris Poole who sent in a postal entry from Devon.
