Charity Christmas Puzzle 2008

This article was published in March 2009. Please see Latest News for more recent information.


Another year of puzzling is nearly done and dusted with the year being marked by the passing of three milestones:

  • The number of entries exceeded 300 for the first time.
  • The money distributed to charity this year has exceeded £4,000 for the first time.
    A total of £4,200 has been shared equally between six charities: Child Brain Injury Trust, Dunstable & District Disabled Sports, Mid-Suffolk Light Railway Museum, St Woolos Cathedral Rescue Appeal, Stafford & Stone Talking Newspaper, Tread the Boards
  • The total raised by the Puzzle now exceeds £30,000.

Entries have come from many parts of the world, including as far away as Australia and, this year, 18 entries achieved full marks including Angie Baker, Greg Baker, the Brabenec family and Roger and Helen Wilkinson from within our villages.

A draw, to select four winners, was held at St Mary's Church, Eaton Bray, on 1 February. The winners were:

  • Pauline Blackburn, Betty Jackson and Margaret Young, S M Jones and Colin & Jan Vout.

In addition, one entry was drawn at random from among all the entries received, the winner being Mrs R H Lowe, who scored 118½. These five winners each receive a cheque for £25.

Thanks to everyone who has supported this fundraising again this year.
