Engraved salver for support
GERALDINE Allinson, chairman of the Kent Messenger Group, presented an engraved salver to Jonathan Neame, chief executive of Shepherd Neame, as a thankyou for the brewery’s continued support for the KM Big Quiz. The Faversham brewery has agreed to back Kent’s Big Quiz events again in 2007, continuing its support of the fund-raising events for the past four years. Shepherd Neame has supplied its Spitfire Charity Bar at Big Quiz heats and hosted the county final involving the top two teams for each heat at the Court Street brewery in December. Geraldine Allinson said: “The Big Quiz raises approximately £20,000 each year for good causes, selected by KM editors. In 2007, the four quiz heats will each select four good causes to benefit. “We’re delighted that, once again, Shepherd Neame has been willing to provide us with its support.” This year’s Kentish Express Big Quiz is due to be staged at 7pm on Friday, November 9, at the Stour Centre, Ashford. The event will incorporate the Mayor of Ashford’s quiz night for the first time.
