Denver Family Fun Day

Last year 12 teams from the local community took part over the afternoon event, some coming in fancy dress which was really excellent. Some even brought their own gazebos and decorated them giving the day a nice colourful “Olympic Village” for the teams. Although at daybreak the day started out as wet and cloudy, it soon brightened up as the attractions were being built up. The teams still got wet of course…. well they were taking part in an It’s A Knockout !!!

Force Cancer Charity It’s A Knockout 2017

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.

About FORCE

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.

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.

Its A Knockout Aberdeen

The Aberdeen and North Centre for Haematology, Oncology and Radiotherapy is a bit of a mouthful, that’s why it’s better known as ANCHOR. ANCHOR is a department at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary which treats patients with all forms of cancer, leukaemia and benign blood disorders throughout the North-east of Scotland including Orkney and Shetland.

ANCHOR needs constant investment in technology and research to provide the best possible outcome for cancer diagnosis and treatment – this is where Friends of Anchor comes in.

Friends of ANCHOR was set up to raise funds for the ANCHOR unit to fund the following:

  • Non-NHS funded equipment – ongoing investment in new equipment
  • Patient wellbeing – Funding to provide additional support to patients during this difficult time
  • Local research – Funding cancer research in Aberdeen

How Do Friends of Anchor raise funds?

Well, this is where you come in! Friends of Anchor work tirelessly to find ways to make their fundraising fun and rewarding, and Anchor Wipeout certainly achieves that!

ANCHOR Wipeout Challenge – Aberdeen 22 & 23 August 2015 Hazlehead Park

Join 100s of other challengers for a day of wet and wild fun ! All you need to do is get a team together, pay £200 entry fee (for a team of up to 10 people), turn up on the day and have as much fun as possible! Spectators are welcome, and there will be plenty to keep them entertained – food stalls, bouncy castles, face painting etc – as well as watching the Wipeout antics.

Come on, a day out in the fresh air, fundraising for a wonderfully worthwhile cause, time spent with family and friends, and a lot of laughs along the way. How can you refuse?
