Weigh in to help cancer charity in tug of war
Wharfers are needed to put their weight behind a charity tug of war competition at West India Quay later this month. Funds raised on September 25 will go to Macmillan Cancer Support.
Teams of eight will battle against colleagues or rivals in a knock-out competition. There will be a practice session on Wednesday (September 18 6-8pm) where a qualified instructor will take participants through step by step techniques - just turn up in your trainers and test your strength.
Robert Warner, creative director of X-Leisure West India Quay said: "Our next event is what we have dubbed 'Tug-O-Wharf' on the quayside. While it may appear to be a bit of light hearted fun, when the ropes are out the competition will commence. It will not only be a matter of strength, it also involves team work and a battle of minds.
"Macmillan do this event each year with the House of Lords versus the House of Commons so that was our inspiration and, of course, it is a fantastic charity to raise funds for."
Macmillan is a cancer care charity providing support to everyone affected by cancer including friends and family. They help people at every stage of their cancer journey and provide medical, emotional, financial and practical support.
September 25, West India Quay, 6-8pm.
Team entry to Tug-O-Wharf costs £40. on For more information email email@example.com or go to westindiaquaycentre.co.uk
