A PUB-STYLE quiz organised and compered by students and teachers at Ryde School has raised more than £4,000 for two Isle of Wight charities.

Twenty-four teams, with six members apiece, competed in the seventh annual battle of wits organised by Trinity House — one of the school's four house groups — with the winning team from each round bagging a tub of sweets.

Proceeds were donated to children's charity Daisy Chains Isle of Wight and the Wight Horse CIC, which specialises in equine assisted therapy for children and adults.

Louisa O'Sullivan, head of Trinity House, said: "It was a very busy week, with cake and sweet sales every break and lunchtime, which ended with a fabulous pub quiz, kindly sponsored by Novum Law and Island Ales.

"Questions were written by our headmaster, Mark Waldron, and the event was compered by year 11 Trinity student Alex Wilson."

Held in the senior school theatre, the contest remained undecided heading into the final round, with team Young Blood ultimately vanquishing their peers to scoop Rhythmtree Festival tickets for next year's extravaganza at Three Gates farm in Calbourne.

A raffle was held, with prizes contributed by local attractions and businesses.
