Fundraisers hope for £10,000 from Bingley It's A Knockout
10:00am Monday 9th September 2013 in News
Fancydress fundraisers who took part in a knock-about to support a cancer charity yesterday hope to have made about £10,000.
Cancer Support Bradford & Airedale put on the It’s A Knockout Competition at Bradford and Bingley Sports Club in Bingley to celebrate its silver jubilee year.
One of the organisers Hayley Collis said the charity had wanted to come up with a different type of event to mark the big occasion and 15 teams had joined them made up of local supporters, businesses and community groups.
The teams all went head-to-head against the forces of foam on an inflatable battlefield, tackling obstacle courses based on the 1970s and 1980s television series and had a brilliant time, said Miss Collis.
And she added: “With this money we will be able to help look after about 40 families for a year. It’s going to make a whole lot of difference to a lot of people. We are delighted.”
