Teams are being challenged to take on a new fundraising obstacle course for Weston Hospicecare.


Weston Hospicecare is challenging teams to take part in an exciting fundraising event.

It’s A Hospice Knockout! will take place in Weston’s Clarence Park on September 15, and will see 24 teams battle it out to be crowed champions.

Each 10-strong team will compete in a diverse series of challenges which will test their mental ingenuity, physical prowess and team work.

Six games will include a host of inflatable fun, challenging obstacles and thrilling races, while contestants will also enjoy amusing costumes and a bubbly foam pit.

Event organiser Kelsey Dehaney said: “It’s A Hospice Knockout! is a brand new fundraising event for 2018 and we’re really looking forward to what we’re confident will be a really fun day.

“Teams will compete across six fantastic games, and must work together to get as many points as possible to get in to the final round.

“There will be bonus points for the team in the best fancy dress – but only one team can be crowned as the first ever It’s A Hospice Knockout champions.”

The day will feature plenty of fun and food and drink options for spectators too. Entry for spectators is £1.

Kelsey added: “Spectators can not only enjoy the competition itself, they can also get involved with plenty of stalls, face-painting, games and activities for all of the family.

“We hope people will come along to support the teams and make a day of it, as It’s A Hospice Knockout! is guaranteed to provide hours and hours of fun and entertainment, all in aid of a fabulous cause.”

Team registration costs £100 – or £10 per person, if the team has a full complement of 10 players. Each team must also commit to raising a minimum of £500 sponsorship for the hospice too.

In return, each team is guaranteed hours of fun and friendly competition, and a chance to earn winners’ medals if they are crowned as champions.

Team registration will open tomorrow (Friday), but places are expect to fill up fast.

All you need to confirm your place is the full name and date of birth of your team members, and your registration fee of £100.
