Win­ning team in

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Big Quiz 2017 -

Moomins stormed to vic­tory at the Ash­ford heat of the KM Big Char­ity Quiz on Satur­day night.

The event, staged at the Ash­ford In­ter­na­tional Ho­tel, at­tracted 18 teams, all of whom scored im­pres­sively well ac­cord­ing to event quiz mas­ter Si­mon Dolby.

A num­ber of or­gan­i­sa­tions helped stage the event, in­clud­ing Spec­savers, Hal­lett and Co, Of­fice An­gels, In­de­pen­dent Mu­sic Pro­duc­tions, and Ash­ford In­ter­na­tional Ho­tel, with ma­jor sup­port from Shep­herd Neame.

The event raised £1,000 for good causes with chil­dren’s lit­er­acy and road safety causes ben­e­fit­ing, along­side the Kentish Ex­press char­ity of the year – the East Kent Hos­pi­tals Trust De­men­tia Ap­peal.

Si­mon Dolby said: “All the teams in­volved scored higher than those at­tend­ing sis­ter heats of the KM Big Quiz Char­ity Quiz ear­lier this year, which was great to see.

“I want to give spe­cial thanks to the or­gan­i­sa­tions help­ing us to stage the event, par­tic­u­larly Shep­herd Neame for so gen­er­ously sup­port­ing the char­ity bar.”

Big Quiz or­gan­is­ers plan to move the event back to a Fri­day night in 2018, in re­sponse to feed­back from teams.

Mr Dolby said: “We suf­fered a drop in the num­ber of teams by switch­ing to a Satur­day night and will put that right next year.”
