Quiz com­mit­tee mem­bers needed

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

AN OF­FI­CIAL thank you to the peo­ple who made this year’s KE Big Quiz pos­si­ble took place in the Mayor’s par­lour at Ash­ford Civic Cen­tre last Fri­day. Mayor John Link thanked all those in­volved in the or­gan­i­sa­tion of the event, held at Folke­stone sports cen­tre on Oc­to­ber 25, be­fore pre­sent­ing them with thank you cer­tifi­cates. The char­ity quiz night at­tracted 43 teams this year, rais­ing £4,190 for char­ity. The Friends of Folke­stone Sports Cen­tre, Find A Voice and the Kent Walk­ing Bus all re­ceived a quar­ter share of the pro­ceeds. The re­main­ing share will be di­vided be­tween the civic char­i­ties for Ash­ford and Shep­way. It is hoped that many of those who were in­volved in this year’s event will join the com­mu­nity com­mit­tee which has been cre­ated to help or­gan­ise next year’s KM Big Quiz in South Kent. KM Big Quiz ques­tion­mas­ter Si­mon Dolby said: “The KM Com­mu­nity Com­mit­tee needs ex­tra peo­ple to join, ei­ther to for­mally sit on the com­mit­tee and help plan the 2009 event, or to vol­un­teer to as­sist with an as­pect of the night or the run up to it.”
