New Spalding Gentlemen's Society Charity Quiz

I know the last fundraising charity quiz has only just finished, but I thought I would bring out the next quiz early. It is hopefully something to help pass the time, and to keep your minds active as well. The theme is Numbers, every answer is a number. There will be the usual three prizes, £20 for first, £10 for second, and a £5 random prize. It is only £1 to enter, and the closing date is the 1st December, so plenty of time to exercise those little grey cells. The quiz is available by email to [email protected]
Please send your answer sheet to the address written in the terms and conditions, all proceeds go to the Spalding Gentlemen’s Society.
Charity number 216131
Good luck, and many thanks.
