Answers to the RollOnFriday Quiz 2011
06 January 2012
Nearly a thousand readers answered the devilish questions posed in RollOnFriday's Quiz of 2011. A few of them were correct, and fewer still provided an email address to be entered into the prize draw.
And so, with much pride and excitement, RollOnFriday can announce the winner is Katharine Price of DLA Piper London. Congratulations. Katharine was offered her pick of prizes: a Kindle, £100 of booze or - best of all - lunch with the RollOnFriday team. She went, wisely, for the Kindle.
