THE Wishing Well pub raised £1,000 with a series of quizzes, in aid of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance (HIOWAA) and Ability Dogs 4 Young People.

The final charity quiz was held last month, on June 5, in the Mermaid Bar, at the Pondwell pub.

Peter Muspratt, bar manager and quiz master, organised seven quizzes over seven months, to raise money for the two local charities.

Representatives from HIOWAA, and staff and dogs from Ability Dogs 4 Young People were invited to attend the final quiz, and presented with a £500 cheque each.

Peter said: "Due to the busy nature of the summer season, the charity quizzes will return in November, to raise money for these two incredible causes."
