SeeAbility Christmas Charity Quiz 2017

We had a Christmas cracker of a charity quiz running over the festive period!

Our biscuit, cakes and treats themed cryptic challenge gave people the chance to win £250!

All money raised will go to SeeAbility. It's a great way to support a charity in your local community and hopefully it made a great stocking filler too!

 

The winners!

Congratulations to our two Christmas Quiz winners.

1st prize of £250 went to Mr A of Exeter

And the BONUS PRIZE of £100 goes to Mr L of Surrey
