Fair Frome Christmas Quiz 2017 results

Fair Frome’s first Christmas Quiz was devised by local quiz master Paul Hewitt.  We are indebted to him for his time and energy spent in compiling and marking the quiz for the charity’s benefit.  The proceeds of £98 will go towards our projects working with people in need.

Our prize sponsors were Cooper Hall, Merlin Theatre, Owl and Hunting Raven Books and we thank them all for their generous contributions.   Our winners were all thrilled with their prizes:

1st Prize Winner: Iva Stather  (Merlin voucher)

2nd Prize Winner: Anne Hardy (tickets for Cooper Hall show)

3rd Prize Winner: Elsie Collier (Owl voucher)

4th Prize Winner Hayley Desmond (Hunting Raven Book voucher)

Many thanks to everyone who bought a quiz and to our volunteers who sold them on our behalf.  We will do a repeat for Christmas 2018!  Thanks all.
