Tense tie-breaker settles KM Big Charity Quiz 2014 at Lordswood Leisure Centre

By KentOnline reporter

The KM Medway Big Charity Quiz 2014 was a record-breaking night with the event’s first three-way tie for the top spot and a staggering £7,000 raised for charity.

A sudden-death tiebreak question was used to crown Supernova as the eventual winners, but runners-up Lilley’s Tours and Moomins will join fourth-placed Scumbag University at the county final of the KM Big Quiz later this year.

Thanks to the generosity of Barclays staff and Kent brewer Shepherd Neame the Medway event raised the most it has ever done with more than £7,000 expected to be distributed to good causes including the Medway Messenger’s Charity of the Year, Royal Voluntary Service, and the children’s road safety department at the KM Charity Team.

Helen Sharpe from the Royal Voluntary Service joined KM Charity Team Chief Executive Simon Dolby to host the event.

Mr Dolby said: “The event was great fun and with all but one of the teams scoring more than 50 per cent correct answers. The teams should all be very proud of themselves. They were a very bright bunch.”

Quiz-goers taking part have the chance to earn a limited edition KM Brain and Brawn Challenge T-shirt by joining in two more charity challenge events this year. They have the choice of the KM Charity Walk, KM Big Bike Ride, KM Assault Course Challenge, KM Abseil and KM Dragon Boat Race. To find out more visit www.kmcharityteam.co.uk
