A FUN-FILLED charity event for all the family returns this summer in a bid to raise thousands of pounds.

Knockout Challenge 2011 will be the third such event held in Grantham to raise money for children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent.

The event is organised by Grantham mum Kelly Stewart. Kelly has battled cancer herself but decided to organise the event after the charity helped her son, Daniel, in his fight against leukaemia.

Kelly said: “We’re hoping this year will be the biggest and best yet. There will be new games for people to play and more water games as well.

“Hopefully everyone will get behind it and come out and support the event.”

Daniel, 16, is once again set to open the event. He is close to completing his chemotherapy during the two-year maintenance stage of his treatment and will hopefully be given the all-clear when he turns 21.

In a change from previous years, this year’s Knockout Challenge will be held at the King’s School playing fields off North Parade.

Kelly said: “It’s great that the King’s School is getting behind us and supporting us.

“The King’s School combined cadet force will also be helping out again which we are very grateful for. We couldn’t do it without them.”

Teams are being encouraged to sign up for this year’s event on Saturday, June 4, as soon as possible. Teams who sign up before Friday, April 29, will receive a free challenge T-shirt.

Teams are made up of a maximum of ten competitors each paying £20 per person. However, the £20 entry fee can be deducted from each person’s sponsorship form.
