Recruiting of teams of the Force Cancer Charity It’s A Knockout 2017 is underway.
The Force Cancer Charity It’s A Knockout fundraising event this year takes place at Topsham Rugby Cub on Saturday 2nd September 2107. Our twelve game Gold Show will be entertaining the teams again this year.
FORCE Cancer Charity is based in Exeter, Devon. They believe that anyone diagnosed with cancer deserves the best possible treatment and professional support close to home. Since 1987 the charity has been funding local research and buying equipment to improve patient care. In 2004 they opened a Cancer Support and Information Centre in the grounds of the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital. The Centre is open every weekday 9:30-4:30 (Wednesdays 6:30) for people needing physical, emotional, psychological and practical support at a difficult time in their lives. They also offer support and information sessions once a week in the Devon towns of Tiverton and Okehampton. All their services are free of charge. FORCE needs to raise more than £1.2million every year to maintain the services it offers. That money comes from legacies, donations, the FORCE charity shop and from fundraising events.
It’s A Knockout Fundraiser.
In 2015 FORCE and Knockout Challenge Limited staged a fantastically successful event at Powderham Castle where 72 teams tackled the full Gold Show contest in brilliant sunshine. The day was such a massive hit that a second event ran in 2016, this time at Topsham Rugby Club and in pouring rain. The soggy conditions didn’t detract from another incredible day and the two Knockout Challenge events have raised around £40,000 for FORCE.
