Fundraisers at the Garden House Hospice have come up with a knockout idea to help celebrate its 25th year – and put some cash in the coffers at the same time.

They’re reviving the whacky games contest It’s A Knockout, watched by millions on TV during its heyday in 1960s and 1970s, and calling on squads of fit fun-seekers to get involved.

The big event in aid of the Letchworth-based hospice, which provides services to families all over North Herts, will be held on Sunday, June 7, at the Marriotts School and Sports Centre in Stevenage.

Organiser Cathy White said: “2015 is our 25th Anniversary year and we could not survive without the support we receive from the local community.

“We wanted to arrange a fun event which would give something back, and It’s A Knockout does just that.
