"DOUBLE DECKERS" The New Dragonfly Quiz

Consider the following cryptic clues ~ all answers begin with the letter "D"

1.Disturbed, sordid lady even she created calamity on
film (5,3)
2. Trump, for example, means nothing to cartoon
character (6,4)
3. She distressed Samson (7)
4. Town that is loved to the North (of Ripon) (10)
5. Bird of evil returns to elegant King (8)

The first two are "Double Deckers" (each word starts with the same letter), the next is a person's name, then a place name and the final one is a bird.

Interested? There are 100 similar clues in the Second Dragonfly Quiz entitled "D is for Double Decker" which contains clues to 50 Double Deckers and 50 words starting with the letter "D" (with five themed groups of 10). Copies of the new Quiz can be obtained from the organiser: Mrs Pauline Ward, 9 Hassop Road, Reddish, Stockport, Cheshire, SK5 6ST. Entry is �1 and cheques should be made payable to "Stockport NHS Foundation Trust (Dragonfly Team)" which will support the work of a local Children's Pallative Care Team nursing chronically and terminally ill children, some of whom are spending their last days in the bosom of their family wherever possible.

Don't forget to enclose a stamped addressed envelope.

You will have until the beginning of March 2008 to submit your answers and �50 has been allocated for prizes ~ including a prize for obtaining the average score and another prize for scoring below the average!

Once again, the Questions have been set by Krophta (aka crofter).

Answers:
1. DORIS DAY = Anag of SORDID + even letters of LADY
2. DONALD DUCK = Donald (Trump) + Duck (0)
3. DELILAH = She cut the hair of (dis-tressed) Samson
4. DARLINGTON = Darling (loved) to N(orth)
5. DABCHICK = BAD returns to CHIC (elegant) K(ing)

yapisle...Crofter has very kindly compiled this quiz for me, as I just would not be a match to his skills!
Crofter knew I did a lot of charity fundraising.
He very kindly donated his time and expertise to offer his services to compile these quizes for me as a fundraising activity.
The very least I can do and like to do, is organise the running of it.
Hope that explains it!!!
cheque in post tomorrow
