Ok Ladies and Gentlemen – here is the situation!
Over the last 24 hours we’ve been watching the weather closely, mindful of the forecast heavy rainfall for Saturday.
HOWEVER, WE ARE DELIGHTED TO CONFIRM THAT IT’S A KNOCKOUT IS GOING AHEAD.
We have consulted with our suppliers, medical provision and fellow organisers and the weather remains within the parameters Knockout Challenge are safe to operate.
Parking, is however an issue. Due to the recent rainfall the facilities planned at Truro Cricket Club are no longer accessible BUT….
We would encourage you all to make use of Truro Park & Ride and other car parks in Truro. Please then make your way to the coach park at the rear of Marks & Spencer and opposite Iceland, where we have arranged for a SHUTTLE BUS SERVICE to run between the hours of 10AM TO 5PM to transport everyone to and from Truro Cricket Club. Thank you very much to A2B Coaches for helping us out at short notice.
Teams remain welcome to bring a gazebo or tent if they wish for shelter, but we suggest remaining mindful of pegging these into the ground.
If you have any questions please call the Fundraising Team on 01726 66868 option 3 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Are you up for a challenge? Fancy a fun filled, laugh a minute foam-tastic day with friends or work colleagues trying to beat everyone else and come out on top?
It’s a Knockout 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.
It’s a Knockout was a game show first shown on the BBC back in the 1960’s. Like the game show, It’s a Knockout is inclusive of all fitness levels. 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.
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.
