Young farmers host It's a Knockout event to raise funds for Barnoldswick toddler
9:00am Wednesday 27th February 2013 in News
Young farmers from South Craven are organising an It’s a Knockout afternoon to help a disabled toddler walk.
They will recreate the popular 1970s TV game show to raise money for treatment for two-year-old Oliver Rushton.
Oliver, from Barnoldswick, suffers from spastic diplegia, a form of cerebral palsy, and is in need of a specialist spinal procedure which could cost £25,000.
Fundraising efforts by his parents Adam and Helen Rushton have so far raised about £15,000.
The young farmers have joined in the fundraising by announcing their June 1 event at Niffany Farm in Skipton.
Up to 27 teams of 10 people will compete and then gather at an evening event in a marquee with a live band and DJ.
The entry fee for each team is £400, which includes a meal voucher and team T-shirt and the deadline is next Friday, March 1.
