Announcing the winners of my quiz and the official answers to the questions

First, I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who entered my 100 question ditloid quiz, donated money and helped share the quiz on social media. Your kindness and generosity have been overwhelming. Thank you! I’m sure that the two charities, M.E. Research UK and Annabelle’s Challenge, will be very grateful.

The total amount raised is £1910! I haven’t quite reached my fundraising target so if there’s anyone out there who still wants to donate, donations will still be accepted for three months on my donation page here. I would so very much love to reach my target. Medical research = hope.

Out of all the entrants, I’m told by my parents that 21 entries scored between 96-99 out of 100. Nobody got 100 out of 100! A massive thank you to my parents for marking all the entries and for figuring out the 10 winners of the quiz. If you are one of the winners, they will be in touch with you via email to sort out the prizes. 1st place will get first pick of the prizes, 2nd place will get second pick and so on. Congratulations to you all.

The 10 winners of Jenny’s 100 Question Quiz:

1. Jane Petrie
2. Laura Sobala
3. Ellen Forkin
4. Belinda Dixon
5. Caroline Wiggins
6. Alan Brookland
7. Caroline Newbury
8. Sarah Biscuit
9. The Dicey family
10. Jacqueline Rayner

As you can imagine, I am rather annihilated from everything to do with the quiz and fundraising. I’m in a bad way and most likely won’t be able to check twitter, facebook and my email for quite a long time after this.

I very much encourage all of you to create your own fundraising idea and choose to raise money for M.E. Research UK and Annabelle’s Challenge. They are two wonderful charities that are in need of vital funds. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
