Removals team wins ‘It’s a knockout’

A Luton team taking part in a fundraising ‘It’s a knockout’ event thrashed the favourites to take the title.

Stephens Removals was one of 16 teams competing at the annual Rushden Higham Rotary Funfest, which has raised more than £18,000 for good causes as contestants splash, climb and bounce their way through obstacles.

Team members were elated to beat Wykes Engineering, who’d won for the past three years.
Spokesman Russell Edwards said: “We’re firmly in the business of helping charities and supporting our local community and if that means splashing our way through water and sliding through foam, then so be it.”
He added: “We’ll certainly be back in 2016 to defend our crown.”
