Myton Hospice urges people to sign up for It's a Knockout and zipwire events

A KNOCKOUT competition is set to raise funds for Myton Hospice.

Bosses are calling on charitable companies across the region to sign up for its annual ‘It’s a Knockout’ competition sponsored by Mazda Coventry and Leamington.

Participants will be challenged to battle it out among giant inflatables, costumes, foam, water and obstacles for the title of ‘Myton It’s a Knockout Champions of 2019’.

All money raised on the day will go directly to The Myton Hospices to help it continue to support terminally ill people and their families across Coventry and Warwickshire.

The event takes place on Friday June 28 at Leamington Rugby Club with family and friends invited to cheer on the competitors.

Teams should be made up of eight contestants and companies can enter more than one team.

Entry is £45, and each team is asked to raise an additional £460 in sponsorship – enough to fund a bed for one day.

And daredevils are also invited to soar across the Ricoh Arena to raise money for Myton Hospice.

The charity is hosting its first zip wire event in Coventry. It will see a 135 metre long wire installed 40 metres above pitch level.

Some 200 thrill-seekers can sign up to the event, which will take place on Saturday July 20.

Entry costs £20 and a minimum of £200 sponsorship must be raised.
