Hurling yourself over giant inflatables and getting covered in foam, It’s A Knockout is the perfect way to bring colleagues, family and friends together for a fun day of games and team building.

Next day blinds company, Direct Blinds, based in Lockwood are putting forward two teams of ten for this year’s event.

Captained by Direct Blinds employee, Tom White, Team ‘Peaky Blinders’ will go head-to-head with Team ‘Blind over Matter’ who will be led by Team Captain Myles Samuda.

Tom White and Myles Samuda represent their teams.


Getting her teams in line is Direct Blinds Customer Services Manager, Emma Dilucia, who has lots planned for this year’s fundraising.

Employees are leading an initiative to fill Smarties tubes with 20 pence pieces which if filled to the top, can fit £12.80 per tube.

The teams are also selling football cards to raise the £600 sponsorship needed to take part in the event, as well as planning a tombola and cake sale for later this Summer.

Only one month into their fundraising, the company have already had £300 donated from their suppliers, bringing their total to date just shy of £900.
