The veterans charity will be the principal beneficiary of the fundraising challenge event, which takes place at Maidstone Leisure Centre on Friday, November 8.

Quiz organiser Dominic Comins of the KM Charity Team said: “RBLI is such a worthy cause, providing much-needed support and services to individuals who literally put their bodies on the line for others.

“So we’re delighted that the Maidstone quiz is raising money for it this year, and I would urge as many people as possible to join us for what is always a fantastic event.”

The quiz is open to teams of up to eight people, with doors opening at 6.20pm for a 7pm start. The fun is estimated to finish at 10.30pm.

There will be a fundraising bar and raffle, with drinks and prizes donated by Shepherd Neame and Hornby, and the money generated by the raffle being match-funded by Barclays bank.

Teams will be provided with substantial nibbles and a complimentary bottle of wine, and the top four will go through to the county final in January.

In addition, there will be special prizes for the best teams representing the health and care sectors and schools and local government.

The entry price is £65 per eight-person team, but there is a £10 discount when you book using the discount code KMNEWS19.

Also taking a share of the charity pot will be KM Charity Team services supporting child literacy and green travel, and one charity chosen via prize draw.

The event is also supported by IMP Studio & Live, Specsavers and Office Angels.
