If you’d like to enter a team into the It’s A Knockout games, please Contact Us for details and we’ll pass them onto the event organiser. Teams should ideally have up to 10 members in them and as in all our knockout’s, everyone, in every team, can take part in every game if they want to. The games will be from our Silver Show. As usual, we’ll also be awarding some bonus points for teams that come in funny fancy dress attire, so get creative and have some fun thinking up an apt theme for your team. Read through some of our other Blogs if you want some fancy dress ideas. A good starting point being Some Fancy Dress Costume Ideas for Its A Knockout Teams

This years games are from our twelve game Gold Show It’s A knockout once more. We’ve got some new games in the mix this year including Kitchen Kaos, Pac Man and a new Bubble Pit, so even if you’ve entered a team into previous events, you’re sure to repeat the fun again in 2018.

So, why not get some friends together, family, workmates or colleagues and enter a team into this great charity event and we’ll se you there! Teams can be from 6 to 10 in number. A team can have more than ten members, but we can’t then guarantee that everyone will get a go on every game. Teams will be required to gain sponsorship to take part. The money going to the Friend’s of Anchor charity.

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!
