Organisers of an annual end of year brain-teaser have announced the winners of their mind-mangling moneyspinner.
Hitchin Priory Rotary Club members sold more than 5,000 copies of the 100-question quiz in the run-up to Christmas, drumming up business at the town’s railway station and supermarkets but also selling many copies online to quiz fans up and down the country.
Entry forms were due in last week and at Monday’s regular meeting of the club the winners were revealed.
There were around 350 answer sheets returned, of which 19 had every question – all based around buildings and other stuctures – right.
Prizes were decided on the basis of additional brain-teasers on the same theme suggested by the entrants, with Simon Bloomfield from Hitchin getting the £100 jackpot.
Other prizes went to Lee Cresswell from North Marston (£75), Marilyn Warner from Letchworth (£50) and Andrew Mansfield from Hitchin (£25).
The club’s Mike MacKenzie said: “If you didn’t manage to finish the quiz, you weren’t alone, but we hope you had fun trying and will come back for more, and have better luck with the 2016 quiz which will become available in mid-October.”
The money raised from this year’s quiz will be used to support the work of Growing People, the Letchworth-based charitywhich uses the therapeutic benefits of gardening to help people with mental health problems, and Home-Start North Herts, which offers friendly help and support to families with young children but which has been struggling to make the books balance since a cut in grant support from Herts County Council last year.
