Childrens Hospice South West

When and Where, I hear you ask

We have 2 venues and 2 dates for 2014

Paignton, Saturday 10th May 2014

Truro, Sunday 11th May 2014

If you’re really tough – or just barking mad – you could do both!

Children’s Hospice South West does a fantastic job helping to build precious memories for families whose children are living with life-limiting or life threatening conditions.

They rely on the generosity and efforts of people like you to help  deliver their promise to ‘make the most of short and precious lives across the South West’.  We hope that you never suffer the agony of having a child with a life-threatening condition, and ask you to join us for the day to celebrate the lives of your own children and help this truly worthwhile cause at the same time!

Why not get together with some friends or family, enjoy a jolly good day out AND help a really worthwhile cause!

All you need is:

  • a team of 6-10 people (bigger is better ! )
  • loads of enthusiasm
  • a desire to help a great cause

Please Contact Us for more information and fund-raising details, or visit It’s A Knockout to arrange a Knockout Challenge for your charity.

 See you there!

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

Frank Bruno and Keith Chegwin for Summer Knockout Challenge

knockout challenge logoWe 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 Read more
