There are some fantastic raffle prizes on offer at this year’s Medway heat of the KM Big Charity Quiz.

Contestants will also have the chance to win a Hornby gift set and a special DFDS voucher enabling up to nine people with one vehicle to enjoy a free return Channel crossing.

Organised by the Charity Team, the quiz takes place at the George Hotel in Chatham on Friday, March 6.

It will raise money for Gravesend and Dartford Messenger charity of the year the YMCA, Medway Messenger charity partner baby-loss support organisation Abigail’s Footsteps, and the KM Charity Team’s work promoting literacy and green travel in schools.

The raffle prizes also include Hornby collectables

Quiz coordinator Hannah Hawksworth said: “Besides raising much-needed funds for some absolutely brilliant good causes, anyone who takes part in this year’s Medway Big Quiz has the chance of winning some wonderful raffle prizes thanks to the generous support of DFDS and Hornby.

“But you have to be in it to be win them, and ‑ with just a month left to confirm your participation – I would urge teams to book their tables now.”

For the first time this year, the quiz winners will receive a cash prize – with £5 of the cost of reserving each team table going to the number-one team.

As usual, the winners and the three runner-up teams will qualify for the Big Quiz county final at the end of the year.

Besides DFDS and Hornby, the quiz is also supported by Shepherd Neame, Specsavers, Office Angels and IMP Studio & Live.

Teams can book tables for up to eight people, which cost £65. See www.kmcharityteam.co.uk/challenge/bigquiz for bookings and information.
