FUN-LOVING people still have time to sign up for a madcap Hartlepool event.

Hartlepool & District Hospice will hold its second It’s A Knockout competition on Saturday, July 27, and places are up for grabs.

The event will be held at Hartlepool Rugby Club and is returning for a second year after the inaugural event attracted huge interest.

Hospice fundraiser Greg Hildreth said: “Last year we had a wide variety of teams including one from the Hospice, Footprints Nursery, View Logistics, NSK and Sports & Recreation at Hartlepool Borough Council; the feedback we received after the event was excellent”

The Hospice, based in Wells Avenue, offers specialist palliative care to hundreds of adults from Hartlepool and East Durham each year.

It costs £2.3m to continue providing the current range of services
