New for 2017, the KM Charity Team is supporting the Cornwallis Charity to stage an It’s a Knockout Challenge.
Designed for teams of eight to 10 people, the event can be used by any good cause or charity to raise funds for themselves. As is common with other events the KM Charity Team supports or delivers, 70 per cent of the funds raised will go to the cause of your choice, while 30 per cent of funds raised will be retained by the KM Charity Team to support its children’s literacy initiatives.
The It’s a Knockout Challenge is being staged by the Kent-based organisation Cornwallis East Kent Freemasons’ Charity. The KM Charity Team is not involved in staging any elements of the event, but will support by managing the booking process and check-in of charity teams on the day. Individuals and teams taking part are required to use the KM Charity Team’s VirginGiving Money online fundraising pages or the paper sponsor form supplied in the booking pack.

- Teams of between eight and 10 adults are needed to take part.
- Teams pay £250 to register – so Captain’s should recover £25 per person from their group to cover the booking fee.
