Emily's Fun Quiz in aid of Costa Rica project

Closed: 1610323200 (1610323200)

EMILY?S FUN QUIZ Thank you to everyone who entered Emily?s Fun Quiz which raised around £150 towards the cost of Emily?s project in Costa Rica in July 2021. As you will appreciate, the opportunities for ordinary fundraising have been severely limited because of coronavirus, so the quiz was even more important. Thank you to everyone who supported us, and thank you to so many people who sent best wishes to Emily as she prepares for her adventure of a lifetime. She was really pleased to see so many words of encouragement. Every one of the 59 entrants scored at least 76½ points out of 80, which was pretty impressive. With such a tight competition, we had to be fairly ruthless in our marking, allowing half a point where only part of the answer was right, but being generous where an answer fitted the bill, even though it was different from our answers. We had to hold a draw a winner from those who scored 80 points, and the winner was Lynne Porter from Tring in Hertfordshire. Congratulations to Lynn and everyone who scored full marks. Quite a few people said how much they had enjoyed the quiz, and that was nice to hear. The answers are as follows, although, as we say, we did accept some alternative answers, and/or gave a half point where appropriate. 1 Score 50 points at Wedgewood?s retail outlet?
