A FUN-FILLED afternoon of It’s a Knockout-style games saw hundreds of visitors descend on Darlington this weekend.

The Knockout Challenge was held at Blackwell Meadows Rugby Club and saw teams from businesses and community organisations across the region take part.

A range of comedy sports games put the teams through their paces, including Animal Quackers, The Watering Hole, Conquer Castle and Let’s Ski If You Can Do It.

Additional attractions included a funhouse, stalls, tombola and a barbecue.

The annual event is a major fundraiser for St Teresa’s Hospice which provides respite care for seriously ill people across the South Durham and North Yorkshire region.
