St Albans businesses invited to join in with It’s A Knockout fun

DOES your company have what it takes to win It’s a Knockout?

St Albans-based charity, the National Association for Colitis & Crohn’s Disease (NACC) will be kicking off the summer holidays when it holds its first It’s a Knockout! event on July 25 at the OA Sports Club, Woollam Playing Fields, Harpenden Road, St Albans.

Teams from corporate sectors, community businesses, charities and clubs are invited to take part in “knockout” games designed for all abilities, including penguin races, bubble pits, slippery slides and inflatables.

No training is required and there are extra points to score for those teams who bring cheerleaders or wear fancy dress costume.

An NACC spokesperson said: “This is an event not to be missed! Twenty teams of up to 10 fun-loving adults per team can take part and really let their hair down, enjoy the summer and raise money for Crohn’s and Colitis and other charities.

“Children are also encouraged to take part, and the charity is also looking for local children’s sports clubs, youth clubs, families and friends to enter teams of up to six children per team for a special children’s only knockout event.”

Both adults and children’s games will be supported by wacky children’s TV presenter, Jamie Rickers, who will provide the commentary.
