On 4 August 2018, a determined team from Mooney Everett Solicitors in Ormskirk, Lancashire took on and beat ‘It’s a Knockout’ in support of Twinkle House. In total, they raised an impressive £623 from generous sponsors.

‘Our goal was to raise £500,’ says team leader Mike White, ‘We are so thrilled to have beaten that goal. Everyone was so enthusiastic and prepared to do whatever it took to support Twinkle House. In addition to raising funds for a deserving cause, we also had a lot of fun.’
They completed a variety of tough and ridiculous challenges throughout the day, including:
- conquering inflatable assault courses in quirky costumes;
- trying to climb the Slippery Summit while covered in foam; and
- competing against other teams for the champion’s title.
The funds raised by the Mooney Everett team will help Twinkle House continue the fantastic work they do improving the health and wellness of communities in West Lancashire.
John Mooney, Managing Director of Mooney Everett, says: ‘Mooney Everett has always been committed to supporting local charities and the local community. We are all extremely proud of the team for raising money for such a good cause.’
