West Suffolk Hospital’s Knockout event promises to be ‘best yet’
A flagship fund-raising event for West Suffolk Hospital featuring an array of fun-filled challenges promises to be the biggest and best yet.
Twenty one teams including five from different hospital departments will brave It’s a Bury Knockout, on Hardwick Heath, on Sunday, July 26 from noon to 4pm.
Now in its fourth year, the annual event has raised more than £30,000 for various wards and departments and is this year sponsored by Enterprise, Barnes Construction and Premier Printers.
Dave Gooderham, fund-raising manager for West Suffolk Hospital Charity, said they have been working hard to ensure the event is their ‘best yet’.
He said: “We wanted to provide something for all the family and with everything from archery to the funfair, craft stalls to laser tag, we are confident we have achieved that.”
This year’s Knockout will be hosted by a brand new supplier offering more fun, games and bubbles.
There will be six demonstrations including local dance acts and the Rock Choir as well as Punch and Judy and circus skills.
While the event supports the entire hospital, the Forget-Me-Not Fairground will offer old-style games to raise money for the charity’s dementia campaign.
There will be more than 30 stalls alongside the chance to have a picture taken with the police tractor and a fire engine.
For those on foot, admission is free and the charge for cars is £1.
