Charity It’s A Knockout Teams 2017

Reflecting over some of the many charity events that we’ve ran this year, and after browsing through the many-many photo’s we have collected along the way. Here is a short blog showing images of just some of the charity It’s A Knockout teams from a fundraising event held in Aberdeen back in August for the Friends of Anchor charity.

Charity It’s A Knockout Teams 2017

Around 60 teams took part in the fundraising event with there also being lots of other attractions and refreshment stands present for the viewing public. It’s always great when the teams come in fancy dress because not only is it funny and adds a fun visual element to the day and games, but also it helps us with the scoring of the games themselves.

Aberdeen Charity It’s A Knockout Teams

We took our 12 game Gold Show to Hazlehead Park for the event and as you can see from the images, some of the teams had some great fancy dress costumes and ideas. It’s the fifth year we’ve ran the games for Friends of Anchor and it’s always been a great event and well supported affair.

To see some of the great games from our Gold Show, please go to our Gold Show It’s A Knockout Page for details. The 12 games are usually ran in two half’s, with Part 1 having 6 dry games, and Part 2 having 6 wet games, there’s lots of different colourful inflatables, costumes, fun and excitement for the teams to enjoy whilst raising money for charity.

Our Gold Show It’s A Knockout.

The 12 game Gold Show It’s A knockout is ideal for the bigger event. It needs about the size of a football pitch in room and is an impressive sight of games, inflatables, costumes and fun. We know that sometimes it’s hard to visualise what “you get for your money” so we’ve edited a short YouTube video to watch of the Gold Show games all set up and ready to go in Aberdeen from 2016.  Please click on the image below to watch the video.

As you can see form the video, most of the games use inflatables, some games are wet or bubble games, some are dry games, some use costumes, but all have fun-fun-fun !!!! The games list for the Gold Show includes Dizzy Dragons, Ring-A-Roses, Barrel of Laughs, Manic Mangles, Hungry Caterpillars, Pass The Dutchie, Robin Hood’s Merry Men, Castle Chaos, Scrambled, Slides & Suds, Animal Jigsaws and Fruit Loops.

Our Gold Show has 9 staff to set up the games, so can cope with 36 teams with it’s starting price (more can be added).  The video above was taken at an adult knockout day. Some games would of course be different for a children’s/Scouts/Guides/youth event.

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.

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.
