Harrogate Hospital & Community Charity’s (HHCC) Summer Extravaganza is set to return in June.

The event, which will feature popular game 'It’s a Knockout', is set to be a fun-filled day of food, drink and entertainment to raise funds for NHS services at Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust.

HHCC is hosting the event on Sunday 30th June 2024 at the Harrogate Railway Athletic Football Club between 10am to 3pm.

Yvonne Campbell Acting Business Development, Charity and Volunteer Manager said:

“I am excited to see this fundraising event continue to connect with the local community and contribute to a significant cause.

“It's inspiring to witness the enthusiasm and determination of local businesses, teams, and fundraisers as they compete for the title of It's A Knockout Champion 2024!”

Teams of 10 contestants will face water, foam and obstacles in their quest to conquer the obstacle course and be crowned ‘It’s a Knockout Champion 2024’.

Whilst cheering on the It’s a Knockout contestants, attendees can grab a bite to eat from a selection of sweet and savoury food stalls with drinks available throughout the day.

In between waves of contestants there will also be time to visit a range of stalls, the chance to take part in fairground games as well as a bouncy castle and face painting for the kids.

For those who want to test their mettle against the obstacle course, entry into the It’s A Knockout games is £25 per person and contestants can join as an individual or part of a team.

It’s A Knockout is catered to most fitness levels, however all participants must be aged 16 or above.

All proceeds from the Summer Extravaganza featuring Its A Knockout event go towards making life-changing differences to staff, patients and service users.

The event is free to attend for all ages however if you wish to donate, contact the HHCC Team via email hdft.hhcc@nhs.net or phone 01423 557408.
