Christmas Puzzle 2022

23 - 15, 8 - 1

Enormous thanks to all my Puzzlers for your great generosity, which has allowed me, this year, to distribute £8,500 to be shared between five charities – Mission Possible UK, Breast Cancer Now, PSP Association and The Woodland Trust and St Mary's Church, Eaton Bray where I am the Reader.

This brings the total raised by the 32 Puzzles since 1991 to £127,600. The donations have been made to 92 different charities of which 62 have received donations of £1,000 or more.

Thank you too for the many good wishes regarding my health and your many congratulations following the award of my BEM. I am conscious that I make far too many mistakes for my liking but thanks to Andy Cole, my scrutineer not too many mistakes have got through. Sadly Andy died last year and I will miss his wisdom; I am delighted to say that his role has been taken over by John Whitehead with whom I look forward to working. He has already completed a first review of next year’s Puzzle and I am pleased to announce that I have what I think will be a popular theme for 2024.
