The response to this first Dragonfly quiz has been amazing! Little donations still keep coming in, but so far the unit have been donated �575 from this quiz! I never anticipated making so much!! Thank you seems so inadequate, but I am sincerely grateful to each and everyone one of you. I feel really humbled with the generosity and support from you all. I marked all the sheets!!.. Then they were piled and randomly numbered into 'all correct' for the first two prizes, then the Median and Quartile prizes. As we had such a good response, we felt it ought to be recognised, so we awarded an extra prize..just for entering it! Crofter then, (over the phone,) only having numbers to select from, 'picked' the winning numbers for each section at random! The results are as follows: First Prize ..�20...Aquagility! Second Prize..�10..Mrs P Aston..Wimborne Third Prize..�10 ..P Helliar and F Fursey, Taunton Fourth Prize..�10 Mrs S Handley, Marple Random Fifth Prize..�10..J W Aylin, Twickenham Many congratulations to all winners! I will be posting answersheets back to those who sent sae's as soon as I can. I will be enclosing Crofter's explanation answer sheet with them. The Unit are absolutely delighted and intend to buy a portable light sensor machine with the money, so you have all helped many sick children. Thank you so much! It remains for me to sincerely thank Crofter. He has compiled a brilliant Quiz and given lots of pleasure to everyone! He has been so giving of his time..for the benefit of many. This was the first Charity Quiz Crofter had compiled, and I felt honoured he teamed up with me to raise funds with it. The feedback from the quiz sheets has been wonderful. I did feed most of your comments back to Crofter, but now here's your chance.... Many thanks again!

Congratulations to all involved - what a fantastic amount raised for such a worthy cause. The quiz has given pleasure to so many and I personally (as well as a grandaughter who helped me with this one) look forward to the appearance of the next one. Thanks.
Very well done to both Pauline and Crofter. Not only have you raised a magnificent sum for a worthy cause, but you gave those who participated a lot of fun (and not a little frustration!)
Looking forward to the next one..........
Well done Crofter and Pauline I think you will agree it was well worth the hard work it must have been to set this quiz up but seeing all the good response and the pleasure you have given everyone what can I say THANKYOU Freebi

Thanks everyone....a �20 donation and another one has now taken the amount to �600!!....Thank you so much everyone!! :-))
This was a good quiz -for me it had the right balance between being hard enought to make you think but not too hard that you give up in frustration!

My sister who is not a quizzer ( and takes the Mickey out of me for being one!) but knowledgeable about birds really enjoyed it too.

Looking forward to the next one!
What can I add ? Fabulous, cant wait for the next one !!!!

was so different and the best one I've attempted.Well done Pauline and Crofter for raising so much money for such a worthy cause.Rollon the next one,and congrats Aq for winning.
A wonderful response Pauline and to a worthy cause.
Congratulations to Aquagility and to all the winners, most of all to the children who will benefit from the kindness of strangers.
Crofter did such a good job that even I could follow the clues and did eventually complete the quiz.
Thank you, Pauline for your time and your goodness of heart in becoming involved in the project in the first place.
I can't believe it - I see I am mentioned as one of the winners - this is a first for me. Thanks for a very enjoyable quiz and to all ABers who had answers for the ones I was stuck on - it really was a joint effort.
