The winner of the Christmas Quiz is a BD Manager at Norton Rose Fulbright. She offered to buy RollOnFriday lunch out of her copious prize monies.

Natasha Lawrence is the second employee in a row from the brainy firm to win. 47 people answered all 12 questions correctly. Lawrence's name was the first picked out of a plastic bag. She had to choose between the alluring prospect of a slap-up lunch with the ROF team, or £100. It appears she spoke to last year's winner, because Lawrence picked the money.

"I’m delighted to have won this illustrious prize", said Lawrence. "Breaking with the tradition set last year, I’m opting for the cash grab but I extend the invitation to the ROF team to share some of my winnings with a Pret sandwich lunch. Happy new year to all!" ROF has duly subtracted £14.90 from her cheque (not really).
