TEAMS are desperately being sought to take part in a family event to help children with cancer.

This year’s Knockout Challenge in Grantham will be the third and last such event to be held in the town.

Organisers were hoping to get 30 teams to enter this year’s event, on Saturday, June 4, but have been disappointed by the uptake so far.

Organiser Kelly Stewart started the annual event three years ago after her son was helped by children’s cancer charity, CLIC Sargent.

Kelly said: “We still need teams of ten to sign up as soon as they can. We haven’t got anywhere near as many teams signed up as we had at this time last year.

“I know a lot of teenagers are occupied with exams but hopefully the event could give them a break from that.

“It’s going to be the last time we run the event so we are hoping to go out as we came in - with a bang!”

This year’s challenge will be held at the King’s School playing fields off North Parade, Grantham.

There will also be five-a-side football, a bouncy castle, and inflatable assault course and much more.

To find out more or to sign up, go to or pick up an application from King’s School, Munch or the Journal’s High Street office.
