St Barnabas Grantham Hospice will hold another ‘It’s a Knockout’ event, following its success last year.

Held in Wyndham Park, Grantham, teams of 10 will take on the inflatable challenge on June 4.

The event is inspired by the TV game show, and features wacky challenges, giant inflatables and various water pools.

Starting at noon, there will also be various stalls and a barbecue.

Tina Dingley, corporate fund-raiser 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.”

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, a ‘Children’s Challenge’ will take place after the main event, when youngsters will be able to compete on the giant inflatables on the day for £5. There is no need to register in advance.

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