Knock-out support for Birmingham’s John Taylor Hospice
It was inflatables and fun this weekend for an It’s a Knockout competition to support Birmingham’s John Taylor Hospice.
12 teams battled it out to take the top prize at the event at The Pavilion, Moor Lane on Sunday May 18 as the sun shined.
And each of the competitors had a go at a range of events including a life-size table football table and a space hopper derby.
The event was sponsored by Small Heath based company Connect Distribution who are long term supporters of John Taylor Hospice.
And it raised over £6000 for John Taylor’s work supporting people and their families across Birmingham both in the Hospice and the community.
Participant Edmund Bentsi-Enchill said: “The John Taylor Hospice’ fun day was a fantastic. Everyone involved had a good time, people raised loads of money for charity. I wouldn’t change anything about it”.
