A CRAZY day of games and laughter is on the way to help raise money for a hospice.

Hartlepool & District Hospice staff and supporters are preparing for another It’s a Knockout fundraising event.

Last year was the Hospice’s first event of its kind, which attracted teams from throughout the region to compete in the wet and wacky games in support of the local charity.

This year, the hospice is recruiting teams of between six and ten members to join in the fun, which takes place at Hartlepool Rugby Club on Easington Road on Saturday, July 27.

Events fundraiser Greg Hildreth said: “This is a great opportunity for friends or work colleagues to get together and have a fantastic day out, while helping to raise money for their local hospice.

“We have had lots of enquiries already so early booking is advisable to secure your team’s place.”

It costs £100 to enter your team. For further details, contact the fundraising team on (01429) 855529 or go to www.hartlepoolhospice.co.uk
