It’s a Knockout!

Knockout Champs 2014: The Clique!

The competition was intense this weekend at our Knockout Challenge!

Held at Blackwell Meadows Rugby Club on Sunday 27th July, the annual event attracted 15 terrific teams from across the region, and hundreds of spectators flooded in to cheer them on and enjoy the attractions on-show.

Taking part were: the Military Bootcamp; The Yorkshire Puddings, from Yorkshire Building Society; Team Bannatyne, from the Bannatyne Group; The Clique; Hogan’s Heroes, from Hogan’s Darlington; the Revamp Rebels from Revamp; the EFSS Sharks from AMEC; the Bunch of Bankers, from Barclays Bank; Darlington Co-Operative Funeral Care; Sherwoods; the Buckrats from Starbucks; Team Oaklands, from Oakland Vet Centre; the Singing Sisters and the Musical Misters from Darlington Operatic Society; and the St Teresa’s Hospice Terrors from St Teresa’s Hospice.

Teams competed in a variety of wacky games (many involving inflatables, sponges and foam!) for the honour of being named the 2014 Knockout Champions.

In the end, The Clique from Barnard Caste narrowly defeated the Singing Sisters from Darlington Operatic Society and Darlington Co-Operative Funeral Care in a nail-biting final!

Team captain Roger Miller said: “The Clique have supported St Teresa’s Hospice for many years, and we’ve taken part in the Knockout Challenge several times. We’re over the moon to have won this year, and delighted to support such an important cause.”

The event is expected to raise over £6,000 for St Teresa’s Hospice. We want to issue a massive “Thank You” to all the teams who took part; to our super sponsors Barclays, Sherwoods, and Blackwell Meadows Rugby Club; and to our team of dedicated volunteers for helping to make the day such a smashing success!
