How did you get on with our “Tom, Dick and Harry (Pat and Den Too)” quiz?

If you got them all right, then well done, and if you sent them back to us for the chance to win a prize then you’re part of a small crowd: we had lots sent back to us this year and unusually few that were 100% correct. So if you finished yours and didn’t return it thinking you stood no chance of winning then shame on you!

The winners were drawn at our February Business Meeting, and here they are:

  1. B Stone, Crawley (wins £100)
  2. E Dickenson, Dereham (wins £75)
  3. C Hutchcraft, Warboys (wins £50)
  4. N Mead, Orton Wistow (wins £25)
  5. P Taylor, Walton (wins £10)
  6. L Porter, Tring (wins £10)
  7. P Jeffrey, Ancaster (wins £10)
  8. A Towler, Wisbech (wins £10)
  9. L Johnson, Newborough (wins £10)
  10. J Burton, Uttoxeter (wins £10)

(If you were lucky enough to win, and doubly lucky enough to live locally, then we can recommend spending some of your winnings on a chance to win some chocolate!)

Lions Quiz Answers 2017-18 (Website)

Peterborough Lions Quiz 2017/18The famous PETERBOROUGH LIONS QUIZ SHEETS are now in and coming to a venue near you SOON! Look out for our sellers in your local supermarket in the coming weeks. They may also be available through other smaller outlets and our 50/50 partners, other approved worthwhile charities with which we share the proceeds on a, you guessed it, 50/50 basis. This gives direct support to such charities while still topping up our funds to support other community needs.

If you have never purchased one before these are a very popular item. They can be done individually or as a family or other group (at least one regular supporter keeps them to do after lunch on Christmas Day!). Once you’ve answered as many questions as you can, you can send in your completed sheet(s) which will go into a handsome prize draw!

This year’s topic is “Tom, Dick & Harry (Pat & Den Too)”. That is, 100 questions where all the answers include one of those names lurking within them.

To see where they’re on sale locally, take a look here – if you want to be added to this list please get in touch!

If you can’t find a local seller, you can also buy them directly from this website!

It’s that time of the year again!

Thank you to everyone who purchased quiz leaflets this year – your support is incredibly important to us and we are extremely grateful to everyone who joined in, whether or not you returned the quiz to us for entry into the prize draw.

Barnado'sPeterborough Lions are pleased to announce that you can now obtain your quiz leaflets from Barnados charity shop in Werrington.

In common with other charities that sell the quiz for us, 50% of the value of the sale will go directly to Barnados with the other 50% coming back to Lions for the many other projects we support.

A full list of locations is maintained here.

Peterborough Lions are pleased to report that we will be at Sainsbury’s in Bretton on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th November and the following week at Sainsbury’s on Oxney Road on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th.

Please do come along and say hello, and buy a quiz leaflet (or two!). For any organised shoppers planning a month ahead they make great stocking fillers, and we really appreciate all your support. A huge thank you also goes to Sainsbury’s for allowing us to use them as venues.

It can’t really be that time again already, can it?

But yes, it is – the Peterborough Lions 2016 Quiz Sheets are now on sale! A highlight of the year for many people, and an chance to bang heads against the wall in frustration for others, it’s always a fantastic opportunity to test those brain cells and help us raise money for fantastic causes.

As usual you’ll be able to pick up a copy from one of several local shops and charities (if you’d like to support us by selling the quiz please get in touch), or directly from us in person at one of several locations throughout the city over the next couple of months, particular when we’re out with the Carol Float nearer to Christmas – our diary will have locations and dates when they’re available. You can also buy them online (£1 postage charge applies no matter how many you buy, and we still have some from previous years available if you missed them).

For 2016 we’re “Out and About in the U.K.” for our theme, with answers relating to places to visit and events to see around the United Kingdom. A sample to get you started: do you know which is the largest gothic cathedral in England? (Two word answer, 4 and 7 letters respectively.) I’ll be honest – I didn’t know the answer, but I do now as that sample is already filled in for you, so if you’re stuck you can always buy the quiz just to find out!

The price is unchanged from the last few years at £1.50, and you can win prizes of up to £100!

You only have until 16th January to get your answers to us, so don’t delay in hunting us down and buying one (or more). We desperately need your help in raising money for wonderful causes, including for a high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) device for kidney cancer research, a hearing dog for a deaf child, and for Addenbrooke’s Hospital, amongst others.

So massive thank-yous in advance for your support, and good luck!

It’s been another great year for the Lions’ Quiz, thank you once again to everyone who took the time to complete and return the quiz to keep our markers busy!

Of-course the biggest thanks goes out to everyone who bought the quiz, whether or not you were able to return it. The funds raised from the quiz are incredibly important and will be put to fantastic uses. And also we mustn’t forget everyone who worked around the clubs’ volunteers to sell the quiz sheets, from a wide variety of shops and pubs to the charities and other organisations who sell them on a 50:50 basis to help raise funds for other great causes.

But you don’t care about any of that, you just want to know if you were a winner, right?

Peterborough Lions Quiz 2015

Peterborough Lions Quiz 2015

Christmas is fast approaching, which can only mean one thing: 2015’s Peterborough Lions Quiz is here!

As usual you’ll be able to pick up a copy from one of several local shops and charities (if you’d like to support us by selling the quiz please get in touch), or directly from us in person at one of several locations throughout the city over the next couple of months – check out our diary for locations and dates. You can also buy them online (£1 postage charge applies no matter how many you buy, and we still have some from previous years available if you missed them).

This year the theme is “What’s My Line? (Careering around the world of work)”, so if you know your accountants from your bookkeepers you should have an advantage – but if you don’t, not to worry because as always the connection to the topic is pretty loose, and as usual it’s all a bit of fun. To get you started, try a sample question: “Mail male” (answer is 7 letters).

The price is unchanged from the last few years at £1.50, and you can win prizes of up to £100!

For those of us who have been around a while this might not come as a surprise, but can you believe that the Peterborough Lions Quiz has been going over 25 years?

Once again, a huge thank you to everyone who bought our 2014 quiz – another fantastic success and a credit to everyone who took part. Amongst the beneficiaries are 48 local charities and non-profit organisations who sold quiz leaflets on a 50:50 share basis.

2nd Prize – J Harrison, March
3rd Prize – B Stone, Crawley
4th Prize – J Bamford, Spalding
5th Prize – E Dickinson, Dereham
6th Prize – S Maplethorpe, Bretton
7th Prize – L Madden, Hemel Hempstead
8th Prize – J & G Harris, Longthorpe

As always it’s great to see winners from outside Peterborough – thank you to everyone who returned entries and kept our markers busy!

If you didn’t return your quiz and want to mark your own, or (and this probably applies to most of us) just want to find the answers to the questions you couldn’t answer, the answers are available to download here: Peterborough Lions Quiz 2014 Answers (Adobe PDF format)

So that’s it for the 2014 quiz! Take the next six months off to relax and prepare yourself for the 2015 quiz, available from September.
