All areas of the licensing community were represented last night at the annual Light Fund Quiz - with Coolabi eventually running out the winner in a closely fought battle of minds.

The quiz - held every year in aid of The Light Fund, which is the industry's official charity - took place at Shillibeers pub in Islington, North London.

Coolabi's Rampant Ronnies team were crowned champions after ten rounds, although the Hit Entertainment B team and The Marmite Soldiers from Copyrights were joint second, just one point behind.

Chorion's Mr & Little Miss Scatterbrains, Bloody Marvellous Products made up of Zap/Aykroyds/Roy Lowe and DRI also performed well.

However, down the other end of the table, TDP Textiles came last, with Phil King collecting the team's prize of a pair of Big Pants.

"The Light Fund is a fantastic charity and the committee always puts in a huge amount of time and energy to make the events a great success," said Janet Woodward, head of licensing at Coolabi. "The Light Fund Winner's Award will always have pride of place in our trophy cabinet."
