A Rothesay resident’s charity quiz has raised £750 for Cancer Research UK.

Robert McKirdy has been organising postal quizzes to raise money for charity every year since 1997, using a network of friends to distribute the quizzes across Bute, mainland Scotland and England.

This year’s quiz answers were all the names of birds, and the three prize winners this year were Mary Nicolson of Taynuilt, Mrs M. Norris of Selkirk and Mrs M. Ferguson of Rothesay.
