Two teams of Toppesfield employees recently went head to head against each other, and 160 other individuals, in the points-based obstacle challenge ‘It’s a knockout’.

Based on the hit television programme, teams of ten competed in a series of games to be crowned ‘It’s a knockout’ champion.

‘Toppesfield Smarties’ took internal victory over the ‘Topps and Robbers’.

Not only did Toppesfield partake, the surfacing company sponsored the event that raised money for St Elizabeth Hospice.

Director, David Last, said “We were pleased to sponsor this fun day that raises funds towards a cause close to the hearts of many people including, of course, our great team. We look forward to sponsoring ‘It’s a knockout’ again next year.”

The day at Bourne Vale club in Ipswich included a barbeque, music, tombola, raffle and outdoor bar. Early indications show that around £8,000 was raised on behalf of St Elizabeth Hospice- an organisation that improves life for people living with a progressive illness across East Suffolk and Waveney.
