The Rotary Club of St Ives, supported by Rotarians and friends from across Cambridgeshire, have once again raised over £2,500 for charity with their latest county-wide quiz. Forty pubs and clubs entered, competing simultaneously on Thursday night, 29th September, for the coveted Quizmaster Cup, which was once again kindly donated by WellingtonWise Sales & Letting Agents

The team from The Three Horseshoes at Wistow were our biggest team with 44 quizzers, and were also the winners, scoring a magnificent 182 points out of 195 and winning a cheque for £250 for The Malcolm Whales Foundation. Wellington Wise also donated a case of wine for the winning team, and a half case for the runners-up who were The Three Horseshoes at Houghton and chose The Ladybird Trust to receive the second prize cheque for £150.

Floods Tavern St Ives came third with 177 points and won £100 for The Mayor's Charity.

The prize for the largest team went to The Market Inn in Huntingdon, who matched The Prince of Wales at Hilton with 25 team members but beat them on countback with 1 point extra in the last round! They chose The Pantry by Diamond Hampers to receive the £100 cheque. 


Almost 600 people took part as quizzers, quiz masters or at ‘Quiz Control’ where all of the scores are phoned in. 

All of the money raised goes to charitable causes; £950 of this goes directly to the charities chosen by the eleven winning teams (top ten scores and largest team), with the remaining amount going into the Rotary Club charity account to be available to donate as needed for local, national and international causes during the coming year.
