Dear All,

Here is the March edition of Quizzes and Puzzles round up. If you have a new charity quiz feel free to add it to the thread and we will include it in later editions.

Please remember it is vital that you add contact details ie email or postal address, the closing date, the cost, where the quiz funds will be going and the theme of the quiz, thanks.

If you have already added it to AB you can just post the link to the question.

From Furry pussy cat about her quiz:

Buxton Mountain Rescue Quiz 9.
I have just noticed the entry of my quiz in the 'Quizzes & Puzzles Round Up' and would like to clarify the wording which states - 'In aid of supporters of Buxton Mountain Rescue Team'.
This quiz is sold on behalf of the team and 100% of the money raised goes to the team itself and not to supporters of the team which is completely different.

If anyone would like to support my latest quiz who hasn't already, full details can be found in the Round Up section No: 30 in the list.

Thank you for your continued support.
Honiton Festival of Imagination Quiz 'To B or not to Bee' - five sections including anagrams, famous people, words containing the word Bee etc. Prizes: £20, £10 and £5. Closing date: 30/4/15. £1 per entry. Send SAE with £1 coin (no cheques please) to Festival of Imaginaton Quiz, c/o Honiton Library, 48-50 New Street, Honiton, Devon EX14 1BS. Alternatively, email [email protected] and we will email you a copy, then pay your entry free when you return the quiz for marking.
