An It’s A Knockout contest where we can have loads of fun, compete against other teams from across North Herts and help the Garden House Hospice at the same time? That sounds Wicked!

That was the reaction at one company when they saw the challenge issued by the hospice team in advance of June’s inaugural challenge.

The team at innovative wrapping paper firm Wicked Wrapping Paper, based in Hitchin’s Wilbury Way, reckoned the fun competition sounded just the ticket.

And now staff are in training to take top honours when their team goes into action at the Marriotts School & Sports Centre in Stevenage on Sunday, June 7.

Originally the idea of Adam Pearson, Wicked allows customers to create their own personalised wrapping paper through a state of the art website.

Adam’s wife Emily said: “Garden House is very close to our hearts with Adam’s mum needing hospice care and support in 2004.
