Christmas Quiz 2014 Answers and Results

Wednesday, January 7th 2015

Thank you all once again for supporting our Quiz, especially those who returned their solutions.

The answer to number 36 was ‘The Queen’s Speech’, but as several of you put ‘The Herald Angels”, and it was appropriate, it was accepted.

Two people had 40, and the one whose name was drawn out of the hat was Graham Newcombe, and so he will receive the £10 token.

We raise approximately £100 per quiz, and all the money goes to Foxglove Covert.  The next one will be launched in the near future.  Please buy one for yourself, and some for your friends!

Once again, many thanks to Friend of FGC, Pat Thistlethwaite who is already compiling the next one.
