Knock­out day for team

Macclesfield Express - - GENERAL ELECTION 2017 - STU­ART GREER

A FUNDRAIS­ING event at the Moss Rose has been hailed a knock­out success rais­ing more than £45,000.

Com­peti­tors from the town’s Co-op food stores in­clud­ing Jim Hay­wood; Jake Long­don; Paul Grif­fin, Chris Salt; Kyle Fen­ton, Vikki Thomas, Lucy Lawlor and Paul Bramwell took on food sup­pli­ers to raise funds for Unicef UK.

More than 100 com­peti­tors took part in the ‘It’s a Knock­out’ ex­pe­ri­ence, which saw them tack­ling the giant in­flat­a­bles, wa­ter slides and obstacle cour­ses.

At the home of Mac­cles­field Town FC, the team from Co-op food stores in Mac­cles­field hosted com­peti­tors from a range of the re­tailer’s sup­pli­ers.

Rob Hey­wood, from the Co-op, said: “This is our third an­nual ‘It’s a Knock­out’ event and once again we are de­lighted with the re­sponse from col­leagues and sup­pli­ers alike – the day has a great deal of fun and raised an in­cred­i­ble £45,000 for char­ity.

“The money is to be do­nated to Unicef UK, we were all moved by its images of chil­dren in danger and the money raised will sup­port its work.

“I would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to Mac­cles­field Town FC and to ev­ery­one who took part.”
