A charity fund raising team

Can Charities Really Make Money from a Knockout Challenge?

g-crew

Well, obviously we think they can!

Charities are finding it more and more difficult to raise funds in this difficult economic climate, and it can be heartbreaking to put huge amounts of time, effort and even money for very little return.

What We Do
At Knockout Challenge we do all the work organising, setting up and taking care of all the details.
Your event is listed on the events page on our website, and we can create an event on our Facebook page for you too.

What You Do
Your role is to help create even more interest and enthusiasm, and turn up on the day to enjoy the event.

What You Get Out of It
We have put together this example (based on real examples) of how much money some of our clients make from hosting a Knockout Challenge.

Keith Chegwin guest presents one of our It’s A Knockouts

Frank Bruno and Keith Chegwin for Summer Knockout Challenge

knockout-challenge-logo We are really pleased that Frank Bruno and Keith Chegwin will be joining us for some summertime Knockout fun.

A lot of people will remember both of them from the channel 5 version of “It’s A Knockout” back in the early noughties. Keith Chegwin was co-presenter with Lucy Alexander from 1999 to 2001, with Frank Bruno starring as their referee.

Why not recapture some of that old magic by joining one of our Knockout Challenges featuring these two charming gents.

For those of you who don’t know Frank and Keith (where HAVE you been?), here is a brief bio on our two favourite Knockout celebrities.

 

Frank Bruno

Frank BrunoA born and raised Londoner, Frank started his boxing career at his local Wandsworth club, before moving to school in Sussex where he started training more seriously.

Frank had a glittering amateur career through the Philip Game Amateur Boxing Club, eventually becoming the youngest ever Amateur British Champion at 18.

Frank’s professional career started in 1980 and after numerous bruising battles Frank became World Heavyweight Champion in September 1995 by outpointing McCall over twelve rounds. The whole of London celebrated, and cheered Frank through the city on an open top bus.

Frank went on to develop an acting career and made many appearances on the early Comic Relief programmes. He was awarded an MBE in 1990, and is a member of Equity. Having suffered with depression himself, Frank now devotes some of his time to mental health charities. He is an accomplished speaker and is in much demand on the after dinner circuit.

Keith Chegwin

Keith Chegwin started his career as Eggead Wentworth in The Troublesome Double (1967) and Egghead’s Robot (1970). He has also appeared in Roman Polanski’s MacBeth, plus a string of smaller roles in films throughout the 70’s. Apart from acting, Keith has had a successful career in the West End, as a singer, and as a radio DJ. Most of us remember him best as the co-host of Swap Shop during the 80’s. After a spell out of the spotlight he came back to co-host It’s A Knockout in 1999.

After 7 years on GMTV, and numerous cameos for Ricky Gervais, Cheggers went on to

School Fundraising Ideas from the BBC

fundraisingWhen it comes to fundraising no-one does it better than the BBC – especially for Children In Need.

While no-one can compete with the BBC, they do offer loads of good ideas that can be used for school fundraising ideas These suggestions are to raise funds for Children In Need, but they can be used for any other school fundraising projects.

A Knockout Challenge is another option – it is a lot of fun, and requires minimal effort from hard-pressed parents and school staff to make it successful, so bear it in mind for the warmer months.

Fundraising for schools should always involve
