In pictures: Rotary Club of Maidenhead Thames quiz

A battle of wits to raise money for charity attracted more than 300 people to the Holiday Inn in Manor Lane on Friday.

A total of 36 teams from across the area were competing for the Thames Valley Pub Quiz Trophy as part of an annual event organised by the Rotary Club of Maidenhead Thames.

The popular event is now in its sixth year and has raised thousands of pounds for local charities over the years, including the Thames Valley Adventure Playground (TVAP), which was the main beneficiary of this year's quiz.

Tim Brooke-Taylor, star of the Goodies and president of TVAP, was on hand to take up quizmaster duties for the evening, with the White Hart Wanderers team emerging victorious ahead of the runners-up the Pen-Dragons.

Rotary club organising committee member Chris Chugg said he estimated about £3,000 was raised for the playground and other local causes on the night.

He estimated the questions would rank in the 'top five per cent' of pub quizzes in terms of difficulty and several teams had already signed up for next year.

He added: "It's probably one of the most successful ones were have had.

"It's very popular among pub quiz teams."
