A crack team from York Brewery are in training to ensure they retain their crown in the annual ‘It’s a Knockout’ tournament, held to raise funds for St Leonard’s Hospice.
The team made the competition look like half-pints last year when they won not only their heat, but the overall title, by taking part in a variety of fun, but challenging games on the Knavesmire, based on the old TV series.
Nick Webster from the team, nicknamed ‘The Ghost’ said “Last year the lads all had a great time and came out overall winners, so this year we’ve been furiously brewing up plans to knock the froth off the competition again…all for a good cause of course!”
16 teams have already signed up for this event, some are family teams but we have :-
- Supermarkets – Tesco Askham Bar and Morrison’s Foss Islands Road
- Solicitors – Crombie Wilkinson, Langleys and RG
- SBL – Soft Box Limited (Information Security Specialists)
- Adva Optical Networking
- Hilton Hotel
- Howdens Selby
- Electronics Direct and “we must be Dental” from Pocklington
Annie Keogh from St Leonard’s Hospice said “This is a great team event, ideal for businesses, families or groups of friends to enter. As well as being great fun, it provides the opportunity to do some team-building and to soak the boss, whilst raising thousands for the Hospice. York Brewery came out top last year ahead of lots of other businesses, but it remains to be seen whether they can keep their head and retain the title”
It is not too late for you to enter your own team. Who would you like to challenge?
To secure your team place we need £100 non-refundable deposit, we will then send you a fundraising and general information pack (we ask that each team tries to raise as much as they can for the hospice, most teams raise in excess of £500)
It’s a Knockout is held on the Knavesmire on August 28th. Teams of up to 10 can enter by visiting www.stleonardshospice.org.uk or calling Annie Keogh on 01904 77 77 77.
