Lincoln Cat Care - Alphabet Quizzes

Thanks to everyone who took part in the recent "X, Y & Z People" Quiz. There were 103 returned entries, of which 37 were all-correct.

The £10 prize winner was MRS. V. THOMPSON, of Billinghay, Lincs., and the £5 random draw winner was TONY NAWN, of Bawtry, Doncaster.
This quiz raised approximately £130 for Lincoln Cat Care.

This was the final quiz in the Alphabet series, and I will be taking a break for a while, so there is no follow-on quiz this time.

I would like to thank everyone who has supported my quizzes for L.C.C. since Spring 2011. We have raised over £1,500 to help the cats.

When the withdrawal symptoms get too much to bear, and I have another quiz available, it will be advertised on here and on the Fundraising Quizzes website. I will also email all those people for whom I have an email address.

Many thanks,

BJ.
