Following the success of last years It’s A Knockout, we are holding it again this year at Truro Cricket Club. We have brought the date forward to Sunday 1st September in the hope of better weather (slightly wet last year). So, whilst we can’t guarantee the weather we can guarantee you will get wet. We will also have some stalls there including food and refreshments so you can bring the family along – there’ll be something for everyone to enjoy.
It’s a Knockout was a game show first shown on the BBC back in the 1960’s. Teams of people compete in entertaining and funny games that many times use bouncy castle type obstacles. The games are run in a controlled environment with the watching audience cheering them on. In the morning the games will be dry but expect to get wet in the afternoon. The games are designed so most abilities can enjoy them.
The event could be described as a ‘school sports day for adults’, ideal for a bunch of friends or a team building exercise for companies wishing to join in.
Ideally you need 10 people in a team with one nominated captain (a person for us to contact). This makes it a lot easier if we need to contact you for any reason.
Teams should, ideally, be mixed with up to 10 members. Everyone in every team will be given the opportunity to take part in the games if they want to and no one will be forced to participate. The emphasis is to enjoy yourselves. Team members will take part at their own risk and will be asked to sign a disclaimer.

Every year it costs over £5 million to provide the specialist care we offer to our in and out patients. Only 20% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS Commissioners, in simple terms, the NHS contribution pays for 71 days of care each year. In a calendar year that’s only enough to get us to the 12th March. We rely on the generosity of people like you in Cornwall who leave us legacies, support fundraising events, play our lottery and visit our 32 shops.
£56 could pay for three hours of unrivalled specialist care from one of our nurses, helping patients who are terminally ill.
£37 could pay for one Lymphoedema appointment to ease swelling and symptoms for someone with cancer.
£23 could pay for an hour with our bereavement counsellor, supporting families through the loss of a loved one.
