Bumper Cryptic Quiz in aid of Boxer Welfare Scotland in memory of Ali

Post  Safari Maiden on Mon Feb 28, 2011 7:27 pm

Assisi Fundraising's new Cryptic Quiz is out now. This fundraiser is in aid of Boxer Welfare Scotland in memory of Ali, Doog's lovely Boxer who sadly passed away last year. Doog's has been raising funds for them and we would like to help contribute.

The Bumper Spring Cryptic Quiz has 100 clues (10 clues over 10 topics), the cash prizes pot has doubled compared to our usual quiz sheets and therefore the cost is £2.

How to get a copy:

Please send £2 with a stamped self addressed envelope for your quiz sheet to Assisi Fundraising, 29 Hatfield Close, Wellingborough, Northants, NN8 3FF

Please make cheques payable to Assisi Fundraising and if sending coins please stick between card (though we do not recommend this due to security reasons).

Prizes: 1st - £15, 2nd - £10
Draw: £5 prize - All entries returned will go into a draw regardless of correct answers!

Closing date: Midnight 30th April 2011

Thanks

Whoop whoop from me & Ali I love you

I knew this was coming as SM and LW very kindly asked my permission first, I was absolutely over the moon that they did

My lovely little lady (well she was more of a madam !) brought so much love, happiness and joy to my family’s life and I think it’s wonderful that with the funds raised from the quiz this could offer the same to other less fortunate boxers.

Up there Ali will be doing a little dance of approval, you know that bouncy one that boxers do !! Laughing

I'll get my cheque off to you for soon.

Thanks again all
Doogs drunken & Ali I love you Like a Star @ heaven I love you

Don't give up on it Lai. If Duncie here can do them, anyone can Very Happy mind you I was a bit slow off the mark with some of them, SM is very cryptic but clever. I set one or two of them (big help I was ) but I was her sounding board and as I say, if I can get them you lot certainly can

Thanks for the sheets SM - oh ma heid, that looks affa difficult scratch scratch but will give it a right good bash !

Just thought I'd attach an ad that was in the Scottish newspapers last week. There has also been local appeals for people to donate to BWS / foster dogs so the money raised in this quiz will be very much welcomed by the organisation

lol! that's a great photo of a beautiful boxer amongst the bluebells lol!

wow as you say Doogs the quiz is soooooooooooooo hard. I felt sure you would have finished it in an afternoon as you are good at pub quizes :study:

My mum came for lunch yesterday and we answered quite a few so it's coming on but I've just counted up and we still have another 30 to answer We enjoyed doing it though especially as it is for such a good cause.

Any news on who won the quiz SM and how much you have raised ?

I'm useless at these things and really struggled with it but as far as I'm concerned I bought a few and the money is going to a charity which is very close to my I love you that's the main thing for me.

Well done the two of you for even thinking up those questions, great job cheers

Doogs, after the prize money was withdrawn we made £64. We are donating a further £36 raised from easyfundraising/easysearch to round it up to £100. We are really pleased we can send this to Boxer Welfare Scotland. Just getting the details from Lorraine.
