PLEASE HELP TO RAISE FUNDS FOR BUTTERFLY CONSERVATION

Some of you may be aware that John Bland writes quiz sheets which are sold to raise money for wildlife causes. The next one in the series is raising money for Butterfly Conservation. It is called the Lepidoptera Quiz and features puzzles and questions on general knowledge, sport, literature, films, music, etc – with questions or answers related to butterflies and moths. It is not necessary to have specialist knowledge of the subject in order to do the quiz.

The quiz sheets cost £1. There are monetary prizes to be won. The closing date is not until April 2017.

Sue Jones very ably sells these quizzes but would welcome help from members of Butterfly Conservation to support your organisation. As well as buying one for yourselves to do please consider buying extra copies to sell on or send to your friends inside Christmas cards.

The first time the quiz will be on sale is at the DANES (Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Entomological Society) event at Derby University on Saturday 29th October. Jane Broomhead will have a supply for you to purchase on the Butterfly Conservation stall. She will also have it available at the East Midlands AGM (30th October) and the National AGM (5th November).

Copies can also be obtained by sending a cheque, payable to Butterfly Conservation,and stamped addressed envelope to: Quiz, 12 Chertsey Road, Mickleover, DerbyDE3 0RA.

 

Hope to see one or two of you on Sunday.
