It's a Knockout is a success!
13 teams battled it out at the Its a Knockout charity event in aid of Diverse Abilities Plus....
Basepoint Weymouth team - 'The Basepoint Brading Bunch' took up the challenge to enter the exciting “It’s a Knockout Challenge Event” that took place at Redlands Community Sports Hub, Weymouth on Sunday 23rd June, 2013.
With the rain holding off...just...all day, but in a biting wind, my team rose to the challenge of putting in a great effort to come 10th overall! Not bad as we had 2 people less than most other teams!
Above all - we raised fantastic amounts of money for Basepoint Weymouth's supported charity - Diverse Abilities Plus, and a grand total of nearly £455 was handed over by my team alone.
Diverse Abilities Plus is a fantastic Dorset charity which provides invaluable assistance, support and education to children and adults with profound and complex physical and/or learning disabilities, and provide support for their families. Our charity strives to be a ‘lifetime partner’ to each beneficiary and is the only charity in Dorset working with disabled individuals and their families throughout every stage of their lives.
Overall, Diverse Abilities Plus raised £13,500 from the event, which included the match funding by Basepoint and The Act Foundation of £5000! What a success, and thank you to all who sponsored my team and helped make the day so worthwhile.
