The 2016 winning team, Concussion, with their trophies!

Wyndham Park is set to hold the yearly ‘It’s a Knockout’ fundraiser hosted by St Barnabas Hospice.

Now in its second year, ‘It’s a Knockout’ is due to be bigger and better than ever, with teams of 10 taking on the inflatable challenge at Wyndham Park on 4th June 2017.

The ‘It’s a Knockout’ event is inspired by the famous TV game show, and features wacky challenges, giant inflatables and various water pools. Starting at 12pm, there will be various stalls and a BBQ available alongside the big event.

Tina Dingley, Corporate Fundraiser for St Barnabas Hospice, said:

“Why not bring colleagues together to take part in an unforgettable activity that’s fun, competitive and completely unique. A brilliant way of getting everyone together for the ultimate team building experience.”

The event is a great idea for local businesses to get involved in and promote staff morale. Alternatively, you could gather together a group of friends, or even enter your club or society.

Registration is only £10 per person, with each individual being asked to raise a minimum of £60. Spectators can visit free of charge.

As well as watching the giant inflatable games there will be fun activities available for all the family plus food and craft stands.

Melissa Pigott, from the winning team in 2016, said:

“Last year myself and a group of friends saw an advert for ‘It’s a Knockout’ and decided not only would it be a great way to raise some money for a brilliant charity, but it could be a lot of fun too.

“We were right, we had such a brilliant day and had the best laugh ever, and to top it all our team ‘Concussion’ were named the winners – it was the best feeling!

“This year we are back for more fun, laughs and slippery slopes. Come along and challenge team Concussion and have as much fun as we will.”

This year, St Barnabas Hospice have decided to include a ‘Children’s Challenge’ after the main event. Children will be able to compete on the giant inflatables on the day for only £5. There is no need to register in advance for this – just turn up on the day.

St Barnabas is also accepting stalls on the day, which are priced at £100 for a food stall, or £20 for a craft stall. This will pay for a 5m x 5m plot. All equipment will be provided by the stall holder, including tables, chairs and electric.
