Twenty-one teams took on a series of wacky races to raise £20,000 at the Cornwallis It’s A Knockout charity challenge.
Friends, colleagues, and charity supporters completed 12 fun activities from foam covered inflatables to dizzy dragons to raise sponsorship for causes including Pilgrims Hospices and Macmillan cancer support.
The event was staged by Cornwallis East Kent Freemasons’ Charity at Aylesford Rugby Club and supported by the KM Charity Team who handled team bookings and sponsorship collection.
First place went to local heroes Spirit of Rugby, second were Gillingham’s Norman Conquerors, and Cheers Our Table came in third. French Connection won an award for raising the most for charity and Maidstone’s Butler’s Bs, who were supporting the Peggy Wood Foundation, won the comedy award for providing the most entertainment for the crowd – antics included knocking another team over in the caterpillar and drinking the water in one of the obstacles to try and lighten the task!
John Grumbridge, chairman of Cornwallis East Kent Freemasons’ Charity, said: “We’re grateful to everyone who has come along and made a fantastic contribution to what has been a brilliant day.”
Simon Dolby, chief executive of the KM Charity Team, added: “Sunshine, smiles, and success have been the order of the day with all the teams pulling together magnificently and making short work of the course.”
The KM Charity Team runs a series of annual events including the KM Colour Run on June 11, KM Charity Walk on June 25, KM Dragon Boat Race on July 2 and KM Assault Course on October 8. To book, click on the direct links or visit the KM Charity Team's Event Booking page.
