It is named after Josh Harber, nine, who died from acute myeloid leukaemia on July 9, just two days after being diagnosed.

This is a special fund at Childhood Cancer Leukaemia Group to raise money for research into AML.

The charity was chosen following a vote by supporters' club members.

Josh attended Temple Ewell Primary School.

His parents were Dean and Danielle and his brothers were Jack and Lewis.

Josh was himself a keen footballer, having been a junior member of the Dover Rangers football club since the age of six.

AML is a form of cancer that targets the myeloid cells, which do work such as fighting infections and preventing tissue damage spreading.

The quiz is at the Dover Sharks Rugby Football Club at Crabble Athletic Ground, Crabble Road, Dover.

It is on Friday, November 22, and participants should attend at 7.30pm for a prompt 8pm start.

Teams of up to eight are invited and entrance is £3 per person.
