Fun event to raise cash for cricket club
10:30am Friday 30th August 2013 in News
TEAMS will battle it out on the inflatable assault course to raise cash for Clacton’s cricket club.
It’s a Knockout will be held at the club on September 1 from 2pm.
The event sees teams of ten take on the slippery, water soaked, giant obstacle course with catapulting wet sponges.
Gary Kirk, vice-chairman of the cricket club, said: “It’s a Knockout is a team challenge - it’s great fun. That’s the whole point of the event really.
“We want to get lots of people together to compete and to have a really good time. We have some live bands for after the event as well.”
All money raised from the event will go towards repairs at the club pavilion in Vista Road.
On Friday August 9 vandals caused thousands of pounds of damage to covers at the club.
Youngsters were seen jumping on the covers causing £3,000 of damage.
Gary added: “After the thousands of pounds of damage we thought this could be a good way to raise some money towards what was vandalised and it could also help to promote our club.”
