A Knockout for Playscape!

Winning team celebrating

Congratulations to The Saints team, who ran, bounced, catapulted and waddled their way (complete with fluffy halos) to lift the inflatable Trophy at Playscape’s It’s a Knockout competition in April!

It was a grand slam from this group of St Faith’s parents, as they also won the prize for the most enthusiastic participant (Niel Kang, the one wielding the bubbly) and top fundraiser (Captain Annalise Cross, a whopping £1500!).

 
Human demolition300 spectators cheered on the eight intrepid teams (as well as ate cake and burgers!) and there was a wonderful sense of community amongst the assembled crowd. A brilliant, if rather chilly, afternoon, there was plenty of talk of rematches before the day was out.

 
SupportersBut this wasn’t just an excuse for a laugh down on the rec, oh no, we’re in the serious business of raising funds for a new playscape.

And we’re delighted to announce that we’ve raised a fantastic £12,000 towards the playscape appeal!
