Cornwall Hospice Care’s ‘It’s A Knockout’ returns.
First shown on the BBC back in the 1960s, It’s a Knockout was a game show where teams of people competed in entertaining and funny games, often using bouncy castle-type obstacles. Now, nearly 60 years on, teams of up to ten can once again compete in a bid to be crowned overall winner and ‘Knockout Champion’, all while raising funds for Cornwall Hospice Care!
“over 30 teams battled the most torrential rain, but still managed to raise over £17,000 for the care of those terminally ill in Cornwall”
Last year, when the Cornish charity first offered its exciting ‘It’s A Knockout’ day, over 30 teams battled the most torrential rain, but still managed to raise over £17,000 for the care of those terminally ill in Cornwall. Unsurprisingly, the team are delighted to be holding it again! While no guarantees are made about the weather, Cornwall Hospice Care guarantees fun all round. In the morning the games will be dry, but expect to get wet in the afternoon; think wet bouncy castle slides and obstacle courses, all making for some superb spectator sport!
The event could be described as a ‘school sports day for adults’, ideal for a group of friends or a team-building exercise for companies wishing to join in. There will also be stalls selling food and refreshments, and the charity encourages all those who enter to bring family and friends along to cheer the participants on, as there’ll be something for everyone to enjoy.
Set to take place on Sunday 1st September, registration is just £50 per team, with £300 per team to be raised in addition. Teams are for up to ten people, so you can take part for as little as £35 per person. You need to be 16 years of age to take part.
To register your team or to find out more, visit Cornwall Hospice Care and search ‘It’s A Knockout’, or give the team a call. Will you be the next ‘It’s A Knockout’ champion?
