Picture quiz

 Despite the problems of distributing the Picture Quiz due to COVID restritctions, our supporters have nevertheless done a sterling job, and a magnifcent total of £885 (after Gift Aid is applied) has been raised towards the cost of providing health and nutritional support to the Leprosy villages in Purulia.

This year's quiz was won by Garrett Cardwell from West Yorkshire, who has very generously waived his prize.

The answers to the quiz appear below - watch out for the next quiz in the Autumn.

Picture quiz


Thank you all for your support once again. The entries that have been submitted have been checked, and the winner (after a random draw) is Mrs Irene Worthington, of Diggle, Oldham. A suitable prize is on its way and a photo of the presentation appears below.

We are sure that you are all eagerly waiting to see the answers, so these are attached. The questions that caused the most problems were no 25 – Mammoth (picture of Massachusetts and a moth), and number 32 – Gazelle (Gaz L, Gary Lineker). Some people put Silver Fox (he is occasionally referred to as the silver fox) but this would not have affected the result.

The money is still coming in, but after Gift Aid we have currently raised £600 towards the leprosy projects in India.
