We’re a Knockout is a fun team based event with inflatable obstacles that will have you running, jumping and splashing through foam and water. Teams will be also be challenged to come up with the most inventive fancy dress so entertainment is guaranteed! The event has a combination of the body barn members, local sporting teams and the community. The event is not only hosting we’re a knockout, but also there will be plenty of other things to do on the day for families and spectators with activities available for all ages like Axe Throwing with Timber Jacks from Shrewsbury, Bouncy Castle and Face Painting from a local business Princess and Pirates, quality food will be available to purchase from The Smoke Stop, also cakes and treats from Newport’s Avenue Bakes.
Organised by local business The Body Barn and raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support in memory of one of their very own members, Sammie Webster who lost her battle with cancer last year. The event is sponsored by property developers Galliers Homes which has enabled the event to go ahead. Last year, the body barn did lots of fundraising for Seven Hospice and raised over £5000, but this year they hope to top this for another worthy charity. They have worked extremely closely with Kate Thomas at Macmillan Cancer and this partnership has enabled the event to be opened up to Telford and Wrekin.
This event is very special to us. We attended last year and also won, however the day is about raising as much money as possible. There have been months of planning involved, with our charity committee at the body barn working in their spare time to ensure the event is a success.
