Businesses and other fund-raising groups are being urged to sign up for a wild and wacky water themed charity challenge.

West Suffolk Hospital Charity is looking for teams to take part in its flagship fund-raiser ‘It’s a Bury Knockout’, which will be held on Hardwick Heath on Sunday, July 26.

The fourth annual event, which has raised £30,000 for the hospital so far, promises ‘new and exciting’ games and obstacles this year after the charity signed up a new supplier to run the contest.

Dave Gooderham, fund-raising manager for the hospital, said: “We’ve given this year’s event a fresh new look by offering new games and obstacles for our participants to tackle, and we are working hard to attract more teams than ever before.

“We’ve also been looking for new games, stalls and demonstrations so that we can make sure there is something on offer for everyone throughout the day. We are confident this will be our best Knockout and family fun day yet.”

Businesses and organisations are now being encouraged to sign up in teams of 10 to 12 people and will need to raise a minimum of £500 sponsorship to take part.

Last year’s event raised more than £8,000.

Mr Gooderham added: “It’s a Bury Knockout is great fun and something that most people can do and enjoy.

“Whether you are a business looking for a team-building exercise, or a group of friends keen for a laugh, the knockout is for you. Best of all, you’ll be helping your local hospital and will be able to choose exactly where the money you raise is spent.”
