The 360 Play centre, in Knowlhill, will be hosting a special It’s A Knockout competition to raise money for The Henry Allen Appeal.
It is 360 Play’s chosen charity for 2013 with the company helping to provide opportunities for fund raising and other events for the organisation, which was set up by the parents of three year old Henry Allen who is fighting against Stage 4 High Risk Neuroblastoma, a form of cancer.
The appeal is in association with Families Against Neuroblastoma (FAN) and is aimed at raising funds to allow Henry to receive the best treatment possible for his condition.
Teams from local companies are being invited to take part, with 360 Play looking for 10 teams of six people to enter at a cost of £120 per team. All money raised will be donated to The Henry Allen Appeal and a barbecue and refreshments will be included for all taking part.
Spectators and supporters are welcome at £5 a ticket which includes the BBQ.
The event is open to over 18s only.
The teams will be tested with some fun physical, mental and construction challenges at 360 Play and it will be a unique opportunity for adults to ‘play’ and have a great time while also helping the charity.
360 Play business development manager, Anne Basketfield, said: “When we linked up with The Henry Allen Appeal earlier this year one of the things we planned to do was to use the 360 Play venue for fund raising events.
“The It’s A Knockout competition will allow us to make use of all the facilities we have in the centre to create a range of different challenges for those taking part and we hope local businesses will take up the opportunity to help this excellent cause. It’s going to be great fun and very worthwhile for all concerned.”
The 360 Play It’s A Knockout competition takes place on August 21 starting at 7pm, and any local business wishing to register a team for the event can do so by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org The organisers recommend early registration to avoid disappointment.
