Christmas Puzzle 2010 - Winnie-the-Pooh
Posted on December 7, 2010
It is nearly time for Gordon Gray to distribute this year's Charity Christmas Puzzle.
This, the 20th annual Puzzle that Gordon has set, has a theme designed to help completion and will appeal to people who enjoy doing Crossword puzzles, such as in the Daily Telegraph (though it is not a Crossword puzzle). Puzzlers have plenty of time to find the answers and Puzzles should be returned, with donation, by 23 January.
Four winners will each receive a £30 prize.
Everyone who enters will qualify for a £30 prize draw.
Gordon plans to post Puzzles on 7 December, so those already on the distribution list should receive their copies by 9 December. Anyone else who would like a copy of the Puzzle can access it from the web at www.christmaspuzzle.co.uk. You can register early to receive a copy on the issue date of 8 December.
Over £36,000 raised for charity.
£4,700 donated last year.
This year's puzzle will support St Mary's Church, Eaton Bray, plus four other charities.
