Quick-witted customers at the Crown Inn, Sheringham, have raised £1,800 for a local good cause, by taking part in a weekly quiz.

Organised by pub regular Bill Hartland, the quiz sees teams pit their wits against each other for fun.

Crown landlord Bob Brewster and Mr Hartland handed the proceeds of the teams’ efforts, as well as cash raised from a Christmas raffle organised by Christine Tew, to Claire Abbs, who is chief executive of North Norfolk Community Transport.

The charity supports those without their own transport and people who are unable to use public transport because of illness or disability by providing a door to door minibus service, scheduled bus services across the area and transport to schools and colleges.

Mr Brewster and Mr Hartland thanked quiz team members for their efforts, as well as customers and traders for donating raffle prizes.
