It’s A Knockout is back – secure your team today

During the pandemic annual events like It’s A Knockout had to be cancelled, which put a huge dint in Dove House’s opportunity to be able to raise vital funds. The hospice relies heavily on fundraising and this hugely popular event is a big part of the hospices event calendar.

Last year would have been the event’s 10-year anniversary and because it couldn’t go ahead the hospice is even more excited to finally be able to launch it this year. After a very difficult year, people need something to look forward to, to be able to get together and show some friendly competitiveness.

The hospice is looking for teams of 10 people to take part in this exciting recreation of the 70s television show. There will be water, foam, inflatables and a few tactical challenges on the road to glory. There’s still time to sign up, have a brilliant time and raise money to support Dove House. Whether you enter as a team with your work colleagues or want to compete with family or friends, all are welcome.

The competition will once again take place on the hospice grounds (Chamberlain Road, Hull) on Saturday 11th September 2021. Boasting food and drinks stalls, it will be a good day to be had by all.

Jethro Shearring, Regional Fundraiser at Dove House Hospice, had this to say: “Coronavirus had a significant impact on fundraising at the hospice, leading to the cancellation of a number of our key events, including It’s A Knockout. As such, we are delighted to be able to welcome teams once again, to participate for the chance to become champions of the inflatables!

“The competition offers the perfect opportunity for teambuilding amongst local businesses or simply as a fun day out for family and friends. We are hoping to see the event once again raise over £20,000, which will make a crucial difference to the patients and their loved ones accessing specialist care at the hospice.”
