The 20th Samuel Lee Cryptic Quiz


Thank you to everyone who supported the Samuel Lee Charity by taking part in this year’s quiz – we hope you enjoyed the mental exercise. We thank the staff at the Post Office for help with our sales and, of course, congratulations to all our winners and to all who took part.

Was the Quiz easier this year? Perhaps, because although we only had one outright winner, we had five people who only put one incorrect answer down. So, in the interests of fairness, instead of drawing three names out of the proverbial hat, the Trustees decided to award five second prizes and no third prize. Although aware that the prize money would have to be increased slightly, the Charity is happy to absorb the small extra cost.

The winners are:

1st prizes:  Sue Rye and Chris Rayne of Somerset
2nd prizes:  Mrs Meredith of Warwick, Mrs Hopkins of Kettering, Mr Hasler of Wellingborough, Mr Bould of Rothwell and Mr Wootton, Geddington

We send our grateful thanks to our prize money donor, who wishes to remain anonymous, but without whose help, the Charity would be the poorer, as 100% of the quiz sales goes to the Charity.
