Supernova turn up the heat to win final of KM Big Quiz
TOP brains from around the county competed in the final of the KM Big Quiz at The Ashford International Hotel on Sunday.
The Supernova team, who won the Maidstone heat, came away with the trophy after beating closest rival Bonny Cravat from Woodchurch, near Ashford, by four points with a score of 62.
Teams earned their place in the final by coming top in one of four KM Big Quiz heats held in Canterbury, Maidstone, Medway and Ashford that raised almost £40,000 for good causes.
Simon Dolby, chairman of the KM Charity Team, which organises the event said: “We are grateful to sponsors Barclays and Scottish & Newcastle who helped raise £24,000 for Kent charities, a signifi- cant contribution to the total amount achieved.”
On the night of the county final more than £1,000 was raised for the children’s road safety department of the KM Charity Team.
