Girls Names Quiz in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust

Closed: 1527465600 (1527465600)

The closing date for this quiz was 28th May 2018. We sold nearly 300 quizzes and, after final expenses and including donations, I am delighted to say that I hope to have raised the princely sum of £950 for Teenage Cancer Trust. This is an overwhelming amount, and I am truly grateful to you all for supporting the quiz. My special thanks go to those who were able to sell quizzes to their friends or who made donations, and to Fundraising Quizzes website. Firstly, I must apologise for several mistakes this year: I mis-placed the apostrophe in (65) which should have been Li'l Liza Jane, but everyone got this right. I mis-spelled (122) Oh Susanna which meant it was out of alphabetical order. I have accepted all variations of spelling for both (122) and (121) to compensate for this. Thank you to Carol C for pointing out that (43) Pear Belle Helene should have been under B for Belle rather than under H. As a lot of people struggled with this answer I have discounted it completely Generally, I marked according to my answer sheet, but as ever I agonised for ages over which alternative answers to allow. These were marked correct only when a) they had the right number of letters and were correctly spelled, b) they fitted in alphabetically c) they were an accepted phrase or sufficiently well-known and d) they actually contained a girl's name! e.g. I didn't allow Moaning Minnie at (90) as alphabetically it couldn't come after (89) Mona Lisa Smile, nor could Discovering Emma at (32) come before (33) Elsie and Norm's Macbeth. I had said that no answer was just a girl's name, so (90) Marilyn Monroe and (23) Cherie Chung were not acceptable. I couldn't allow (110) Cadburys' Roses because their proper name is Cadbury Roses, and I'm not sure that Roses counts as a girl's name anyway. Apart from raising money, the main idea of the quiz was to have fun, which I hope you did. I have attached a list of the correct answers, including the alternatives that I allowed. 126 quizzes were returned for marking by the deadline. 17 people scored full marks, and 28 scored 132. Many congratulations to everyone. I drew lots for prizes: First Prize £25.00 Helen Fitzjohn, Goffs Oak, Herts 133 Second Prize £15.00 Katie Masters, Palmers Green, London 133 Third Prize £10.00 Mr L K Hughes, Bedford 133 Others who scored full marks: Alex Alma, Sawbridgeworth, Herts; Geoff Badman, Sawbridgeworth, Herts; Beryl Bowley, Newport Pagnall, Bucks; Jackie Burnett, Harlow, Essex; Chris Chantler, Bath, Somerset; Helen Davy, Great Dunmow, Essex; Ollie Doward, Bishop's Stortford, Herts; Robert Kitchen, Much Hadham, Herts; Wilma Melville, Anstruther, Fife; Hilary Oughton, Hitchin, Herts; Vicki Reis, Chelmsford, Essex; Clive Roper, Alnwick, Northumberland; Brian Stone, Crawley, West Sussex; Margaret Westwood, Oldbury, West Midlands. All being well, my next quiz will be a little earlier next year. Thank you for supportingTeenage Cancer Trust. Please see the special message at the end of the answer sheet.
