Help tails to wag at big char­ity quiz night

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

A char­ity is urg­ing Ken­tish Ex­press read­ers to help boost puppy power by book­ing a team for the KM Big Char­ity Quiz.

Guide Dogs for the Blind – this pa­per’s char­ity of the year for 2015 – is hop­ing for a much­needed cash wind­fall from the quiz be­ing staged on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 16, at the Stour Cen­tre, Ash­ford.

Susie New. from the Ash­ford branch of the char­ity, said: “A share of the funds raised from this lovely event is go­ing to­wards train­ing more guide dog pup­pies and help­ing more blind peo­ple around the UK get out and about and be more in­de­pen­dent in their lives.

“Come along and have some fun! It’s go­ing to be bril­liant and it’s all for a good cause.”

The price of £65 per team of eight in­cludes a drink on ar­rival, plough­man’s supper and en­try into a prize draw to win a P&O Fer­ries voucher.

A dis­count code is also avail­able for Ken­tish Ex­press read­ers giv­ing a £10 re­duc­tion on the price and a bot­tle of wine for the team’s ta­ble.

Along with brain­teasers and ban­ter, quiz-go­ers can ex­pect top prizes to be won in­clud­ing clas­sic col­lecta­bles from Hornby and £100 in cash.

Shep­herd Neame will be stock­ing the char­ity bar while Bar­clays staff take on bar­keeper du­ties. Other busi­nesses back­ing the event in­clude Spec­savers, HR GO and Hal­lett and Co.

Also re­ceiv­ing a share of the pro­ceeds are Kent Mul­ti­ple Scle­ro­sis Ther­apy Cen­tre and road safety ser­vices for chil­dren.

Event or­gan­iser Do­minic Comins, of the KM Char­ity Team, said: “If you’re go­ing to take part in just one quiz this year make it the KM Big Quiz.

“It’s our 10th an­niver­sary event and we’ve got a spe­cial night in store.

“With Bar­clays bank match­ing ev­ery penny in the char­ity pot this will make a huge dif­fer­ence to good causes.

“Last year we raised more than £6,500 for char­ity and with your help we could smash that fig­ure.”
