Christmas Puzzle 2022

23 - 15, 8 - 1

This year marks the 32nd annual Christmas Puzzle I have set to raise money for charities. The Puzzle receives entries from Australia, New Zealand, Cyprus, Malta and Ireland plus a team entry from France and Sweden for whom the Puzzle is in their second language. The Puzzle should appeal to people who enjoy solving quality newspaper crossword puzzles and this one is designed to help you finish - the Puzzle has an underlying theme so that, when things start to get a bit tough, you should get more information to help you. Over the years the Puzzle has raised almost £120,000 for various good causes, including £10,200 last year.

Prize money Every entrant could be a winner!
Everyone who enters will be entered into a draw to win one of five prizes, each of £10. In addition, I will award three prizes each of £50 to the three highest scorers; if there are more than three potential winners I will conduct a draw.

I will forward all the money you donate, except for the prize-money, to charity. The money will be distributed equally between St Mary's, Eaton Bray, where I am the Reader, and four other charities Mission Possible UK, Breast Cancer Now, PSP Association and The Woodland Trust. All the charities have been nominated by Puzzlers from the UK. I do hope you will be generous in your donations, supporting the work of these charities.
