AN ANNUAL charity event to help local worthy causes is due to take place this weekend.

Teams are gearing up to compete in the Richard Buckley Memorial 'It's a Knockout' cup which last year was contested by the Top House (Mrs Brown's), The Coronation Club (The Scousers) and Erw'r Delyn (The Minions).

This year's event will be held at Cogan Field on Sunday, August 24, kicking off at 2pm when the fun filled competition will see The Village People, The Pirates of the Caribbean and the Doctors and Nurses battle for the trophy.

In addition to the Its a Knockout there will also be a bouncy castle assault course, refreshments, and various family fun and games.

Spectators at last year's event witnessed the closely contested boxing match over the shark infested pool which saw The Cora come out slightly in front, but ring watchers put this down to their superior weight in the open category.

This was followed by the shaving foam darts/obstacle course event which saw The Minions draw level after some 'dubious' darting techniques and Adam James glueing the orange to his head (shortly before his trip to A&E).

In the egg throw and catch event two members of the crowd came first but were disqualified after testing positive for copious amounts of alcohol.

This meant that the Mrs Brown's won the event by default, leaving everything resting on the challenge Paca bungee event.

Despite valiant efforts by all three teams, and their respective first aiders, Paca emerged victorious once again to leave it a tie.

Organisers are hoping for a good turn out from supporters to again help them raise money for local worthy causes.
