Churchill Services Joins "It's a Knockout" Challenge for Weston Park Cancer Charity!

Weston Park Cancer Charity is thrilled to announce that the Churchill Services team from Meadowhall will be participating in the highly anticipated "It's a Knockout" challenge this July.

This exciting event, a collaborative effort between Weston Park Cancer Charity and Rotherham Hospital and Community Charity, will see teams fundraising to support both charities.

The "It's a Knockout" challenge promises a day filled with fun, laughter, and spirited competition, all for a great cause. Participants will tackle a series of entertaining and physically engaging obstacles, reminiscent of the classic TV show, as they vie for victory and raise much-needed funds.

The dedication and enthusiasm of the Churchill Services team in taking on this challenge is inspiring. Their participation and fundraising efforts will directly contribute to supporting the 1 in 2 people affected by cancer in South Yorkshire and Derbyshire. These funds are crucial in helping us provide essential services, conduct groundbreaking research, and offer comprehensive support to those facing cancer.

Dean Checkett, External Services Manager at Meadowhall, who is taking part along with colleagues, shared, “We’re so proud to be continuing our work with Weston Park Cancer Charity, not only to raise funds for a vital cause, but to also help to spread awareness within our community and beyond. I am looking forward to coming together with members of our Meadowhall team for a day of team building and knockout games all to make a difference for a great charity.”

Sam Heritage, Fundraising Manager at Weston Park Cancer Charity, expressed, "We are incredibly excited and grateful to have the Churchill Services team from Meadowhall join us for the 'It's a Knockout' challenge. Their commitment to raising funds and awareness is invaluable in our mission to support individuals and families affected by cancer in our community. We look forward to a fantastic event and wish the team the best of luck!"

In partnership with Rotherham Hospital and Community Charity, this event underscores the power of community collaboration in making a significant impact. Together, we aim to raise awareness and funds to enhance the quality of life for cancer patients and their families across the region.

The "It's a Knockout" challenge will take place on Sunday, 7th July 2024, at 9:30 AM at Hooton Lodge Farm, Rotherham. For more information about the event or to donate, please visit our events page.
