Competitors take on It’s a Knockout course

HUNDREDS of people are having fun in the sun this afternoon at an It’s a Knockout charity competition.

The event is being held by the Rotary Club of Rushden Higham in aid of Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance, Cynthia Spencer Hospice and Rotary charities.

About 12 entrants are taking on an inflatable obstacle course while hundreds of visitors are enjoying watching the competition and looking around the stalls.

Club president elect Judy Webb said: “We’re really pleased with how well it’s gone.”

Other attractions on offer at the event include quad bikes, a barbecue and refreshments.

Competitor Juile Currington, 23, of Northampton, is taking part in the event as part of the Travis Perkins team.

She said: “We’re supporting the event because our firm is a big supporter of the Cynthia Spencer hospice.

“The obstacle course is lots of fun - although some of the parts of it are quite hard, particularly in this heat.

“We’re getting plenty of exercise.”

The event is being held at Rushden & Higham Rugby Club and is due to finish at about 5.30pm.
