£100 in John Lewis vouchers to be won: Macmillan Summer Quiz

Postby MacmillanQuizzer » Thu Jun 07, 2012 5:47 pm

The Summer Quiz for Macmillan Cancer Support is available both by online donation at http://www.justgiving.com/theSummerQuiz2012and by post from
'The Summer Quiz'
c/o The King's Head
19 Maiden Lane
STAMFORD
Lincolnshire PE9 2AZ
by sending SAE (large enough to hold a folded A3 sheet) and cheque payable to 'Macmillan Cancer Support' for at least £2.

Copies bought online will be sent out from midday on Sunday 10th June. When donating online using JustGiving.com, please remember to tick the box to allow me to see your email address, otherwise I can't send you your copy of the quiz!

Copies bought by post will be sent out from Monday 18th June. If donating by post, you might like to include a completed gift-aid form which can be downloaded from http://www.macmillan.org.uk/Donate/GiftAid/GiftAid.aspx

Copies sent in the post are A3 size which many people prefer. Electronic copies sent to online donors can be printed out on any size of paper your printer can handle.

The quiz consists of cryptic clues to the names of 100 famous women from across history and from across the world.

There will be prizes of £50, £30, & £20 in John Lewis vouchers for the first three correct entries drawn at random after the closing date of 18 August 2012.

Users of this site are kindly requested neither to solicit nor to provide answers to this quiz, although the solicitation and provision of subtle hints from 12 August onwards would be acceptable. Thank you.

Thank you to everyone who supports my quizzes, I hope you will all support and enjoy this one too.

Dave Cowley

I should like to record my debt of gratitude to my friend Dave Cowley who used to help proofread my quizzes for me and who passed away unexpectedly suddenly on Thursday 14th June aged just 57.

I've just posted fully annotated answers to the Summer Quiz(with links to every woman's wikipedia entry)on my blog here: http://macmillanquizzer.blogspot.co.uk

Due to a late surge in entries, we are still marking, and the winners will be announced later.

Thank you to everyone who took part. So far this quiz has raised £1167.
