Copyrights Victorious at the Light Fund Quiz

The licensing industry took over the Emirates Stadium's Royal Oak room last night - and raised over £15,000 for charity at The Light Fund London Quiz, a record amount.

The sell out event, held at Arsenal FC's prestigious stadium for the first time, brought together over 350 members of the licensing fraternity as 45 teams battled it out to win the much-coveted trophy.

The supreme victors of the eight round quiz was the team from Copyrights, which entered under the prophetic team name of Copy-MIGHTS.

At the other end of the scoreboard, the recipients of the magnificent Pants Of Doom (for coming bottom), was Global Licensing. (See below for the other teams' positions).

Rainbow Productions won the prize for best team name with its The Furry Arse N'Alls moniker.

It was certainly a night of triumph for The Light Fund charity. Sharing the good news with the thronging crowd at the Emirates Stadium, Danilo's Trevor Jones, chairman of The Light Fund (and co quizmaster) said: "Tonight, we have raised over £15,000, which is a record for this event. This makes 2015 the best year ever for The Light Fund, with a massive £150,000 having been raised over the last 12 months." Putting this into context, he shared how this impressive sum will be put to very good use. "We will be able to fund projects with approaching 30 registered charities and make a difference to thousands and thousands of people in the UK and overseas."

Leaving the audience with some food for thought, he concluded: "Since we started the charity 11 years ago, we have now raised £885,000. Wouldn't it be nice to get to the £1million next year?!"

Sponsors of the Quiz included Allsorts, Amscan, Bionic Communications, Blueprint, Blues, Brand Licensing Europe, Bulldog, Kinnerton, Max Publishing, Rainbow Productions, Rocket, Ryker Sear, Start Licensing and Warner Bros.
