Charity is often at the heart of many pubs and this was not something that was forgotten during lockdown, particularly at the Portsmouth Arms.

This Basingstoke-based business was declared Charity Champion at the Great British Pub Awards Pub Heroes 2020 after raising more than £23,000 with a world record setting longest pub quiz.

Manager Richard Curtis ran a 34 hour and 11 minute virtual quiz to claim the record, and in total during lockdown raised more than £47,000 for charity.
