Published by the Grantham Journal on May 17th 2010:
VILLAGERS out at Ancaster have taken the lead in trying to raise thousands of pounds to help children with cancer.
It's A Knockout 2010 will be held on Saturday, June 5th at Kesteven Rugby Football Club. This year's event is expected to be bigger and better than last, with more teams, games and side stalls.
The event was first held last year, with Ancaster villagers enthusiastically signing up to raise funds for CLIC Sargent.
Angela Aspiotis has been leading the charge in Ancaster. She said: "Once again, the people of Ancaster have got behind me to support the It's A Knockout Challenge."
"Last year we raised over £3000, and this year we would like to beat that."
"We have entered three teams, Ancaster Pride Originals, Ancaster Pride Ladies Lionesses and youth team The Lost Boys."
"We also have Molly's cheerleaders aged six to nine. A day for all the family is planned, with a tombola, cake and home produce stalls and a raffle. The top raffle prize will be a Nintendo Wii with Wii Fit and Sports Resort."
"Children from Ancaster Primary School are also busy making flags and banners to support the villagers on the day."
Angela said: "People of all ages are helping in some way. We are all looking forward to a good, old-fashioned family, fun day out, showing true community spirit."
