Here is the 11th annual Christmas Quiz. 20 questions, and the closing date for entries is midday on Friday 22nd December. Please email your answers to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The winner will get glory, and in lieu of a golden trophy, M&G has donated £500 to Cancer Research UK, through CASCAID. CASCAID is the UK asset management industry’s effort to raise £2 million for this brilliant charity over the course of 2017.
Breaking news: we did it! But please help us raise a few final pounds by the end of the year. If you’d like to donate a fiver as you enter, please do so at my charity page here https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-display/showROFundraiserPage?userUrl=JimLeaviss&pageUrl=2 but it is totally optional, and I know a) many of you have been incredibly generous already, and b) I have bored on about cycling up hills enough for one year.
Good luck! Conditions of entry of down below somewhere.
