Photo-matching Competition
Thank you to all those who took part in the photo-matching competition and particularly to those who provided their childhood photos for us all to admire! Congratulations to winner Chris Young. Chris tied with Barbara Baker in guessing 6 correctly out of the 10 photos, so both entries were put into a draw and Chris is the lucky winner of the £10 M & S gift card. The competition raised £42 for our two charities.
The answers are here.

25th Anniversary Year Fundraising

Here are the answers to the second of our Quizzes planned to raise money  for St. Christopher`s Hospice and Disability Snowsport UK during our 25th year.

Thanks to everyone who supported us, especial thanks to Phil Greenfield who sold 12 copies to work colleagues, to Morris Poole (Colin`s brother) who returned the form together with a donation, and to the people who  added a letter of appreciation with their returned copies.

There were three all-correct entries.  These were shuffled and one picked at random during a BVAC Committee Meeting.  The winner was Theresa Jurdic  (Anne and Tony Unseld`s daughter).  The other two entries were from Jenny Greaves and Nigel, both via Phil.  Commiserations to them.

This Quiz showed a profit of £62.

Many thanks to Joan for organising another very successful quiz.

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.
