Knockout success for charity event
7:30am Wednesday 4th September 2013 in News
TEAMS of daring volunteers battled obstacle courses and put their bodies on the line in a fundraiser for Clacton Cricket Club.
The club was left in desperate need of funds after suffering a spate of vandalism attacks.
Vandals caused thousands of pounds of damage to the covers used to protect the wickets at the club in August.
In a bid to raise cash for repairs club bosses organised an “It’s a Knockout” fundraiser.
Eight teams faced off in the fun challenge, which included catapulting wet sponges and negotiating inflatable assault courses.
Gary Kirk, from Clacton Cricket Club said: “It was amazing to see everybody come together to help us achieve our goal, and it was desperately needed."
