Winners: QEDcon fundraising

Those who donated to the ‘Get People to QEDcon fund’ were entered into a prize draw. Those who entered £10 got entered once, £20 twice, £30 three times, and so on. Now that donations have been closed I have drawn the winners for the ELEVEN prize bundles. I have also drawn the winners for the free QEDcon tickets that were funded through these donations. The winners are…

Well, no. Let’s wait for that a bit. Here are the prize bundles…
