It’s a Knockout!

The competition was intense this weekend at our annual Knockout Challenge!

Held at Darlington Rugby Football Club at Blackwell Meadows on Sunday 16th July, the annual event attracted 12 teams from across the area.

Taking part were: Halifax bank, Latimer Hinks, EE, Centre for Process Innovation, The Boot & Shoe, John Meynell Funeral Service, Barclays bank, Heritage Healthcare, and Hogans.

Teams competed in a variety of wacky games, full of inflatables, water, foam and fun.

In the end, The Twinkling Stars from Barclays pulled ahead of the competition to be crowned Knockout Challenge 2017 champions!

The Best Dressed Joker Competition was won by the CPI-rates from the Centre for Process Innovation, with their excellent pirate costumes (it’s certainly been a good year for pirates – registration has just opened for our Pirates & Princesses Toddle!)

A massive well done to everyone who took part and to our Knockout Champions: The Twinkling Stars!

Thank you to everyone who supported the event, including Barclays Bank and BoxFit Health Club, and as always to Darlington Rugby Football Club and Dave John B’s Knockout Roadshow.
