On Friday 13th May, we joined clients and friends Sheards Accountancy to take on 11 other local teams all competing to be crowned “It’s a Knockout” champions.
The event, in aid of local charity, the Town Foundation was hosted by TV legend, Keith Chegwin and saw 120 local business professionals letting their hair down and donning inflatable suits, wacky wigs and traversing foamy terrain all in aid of the charity.
A cause we have supported since our formation, The Town Foundation provide over 5000 free breakfasts per week to local school children in 18 schools. Many whom may not have eaten a healthy hot meal since lunchtime the day before.
With research demonstrating that nutrition has a direct link to educational achievement we believe we all need to do our bit to ensure young people get the best start in life.
Unfortunately, the title was not ours to be had but we had a great day even if the Town Foundation and Huddersfield Town Football Club commercial team got a bit over excited chucking buckets of water over us!
