Quiz in support of CHRISTIAN AID, May 2020




You can enter the quiz by printing it off, answering the questions on the paper, and then scanning and returning the paper. Alternatively, you can do your answers as a separate document, or include them in an e-mail, with all the questions and answers carefully numbered.


All the answers are in the public domain, and can be discovered by the use of Google/Wiki etc. However, why not test yourself by seeing how much you know, before going on line?


For people who don’t have access to electronic communication, it may be that some churches will be able to print off paper copies of the quiz, and arrange for their return.


The closing date for receiving entries will be Sunday 17th May. The highest scoring paper will receive a selection of Fairly Traded goodies. If there are several equal scores, the winner will be decided by the answer to the Tie Break question.


Please make a donation to Christian Aid as the price of entering. There is no suggested amount. Please be as generous as you can. You can give via one of the Ilkley Churches or by the special JustGiving website we have set up for this year:


Thank you for your support.
