Groups from across west Suffolk still have time to sign up for a fun-packed, foam-

West Suffolk Hospital Charity is giving business and organisations the chance to take

part in the third annual It’s a Bury Knockout, which takes place on Hardwick Heath on

Sunday, July 13.

The flagship fundraiser will see teams of 10 to 12 people tackle a series of exciting

obstacles and games while raising vital charity funds at the same time. A host of

other entertainments will be on hand during the day, including fairground rides,

a climbing wall and simulator ride, as well as wide variety of different stalls and


The event has been sponsored by Bury St Edmunds-based estate agents Taylor Engall, with support from Bury Round Table and the Bury St Edmunds District Scouts and Explorers.

Paul Taylor, of Taylor Engall, said: “We are delighted to be the main sponsor of It’s a

Bury Knockout 2014. Last year’s event was a great success and brilliant to be part of,

and this year promises to be even better.”

Dave Gooderham, fundraising manager at the hospital, said: “It’s fantastic that we have received so much support from local businesses and organisations. Their generosity has gone a long way towards making this year’s knockout even bigger and better than ever.

“We’d encourage anyone still interested in taking part in the main knockout competition to get in touch, have some fun and help raise vital funds to further enhance the care and support we provide at West Suffolk Hospital.”

Teams taking part in the competition will need to raise a minimum of £500 sponsorship, with a special prize going to the team which raises the most.
