Have you got what it takes?

Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity is looking for organisations to take part in their Krypton Challenge. The Krypton Challenge, as you may have guessed, is based on the much-loved hit British game show – The Krypton Factor which was broadcast on ITV from 1977 to 1995. The theme is being reinvigorated for the business community and the charity is delighted to have the involvement of the show’s original host, Gordon Burns.

Spaces are limited so be sure to book your place as soon as possible!

Teams will undertake a total of eight exciting rounds taking place during an interactive dinner in the iconic Museum of Science and Industry on the 23rd September (7pm start). Most these rounds will involve using digital keypads at the gala dinner and will test the contestants on mental agility, general knowledge (current affairs) and observation.

In addition, there will be pre-filmed rounds recorded at the Etihad Campus on Monday 4th September 1pm – 5 pm and 5th September 8.30am – 5.30 pm. These will consist of the `Intelligence round` and the infamous ‘physical ability round’ – (don’t worry it’s pretty gentle!)

Teams already signed up to take part include ANS, Nuffield Health, Ryman, Betfred and Bruntwood.

How to enter

The event costs £2,500 per team of 5 players to enter (this can be raised through sponsorship) and this includes a table of 10, with the table including plus ones of the contestants, at the final dinner. The final dinner will include a champagne reception, a night hosted by celebrity presenter Gordon Burns, a three-course meal, interactive quiz, and auction.

Help us reach our target for the night - £100,000

All funds raised will go towards our Project: Heart Care for Children. This money will buy a new echo machine for the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital’s Paediatric Cardiology out-patient department.

The Echo machine is similar to the machine which produces the ultrasound scans used in pregnancy, and is especially useful for diagnosing heart disease in new-born babies and children as it is painless and easy to do.

Having a brand new, state-of-the-art Echo machine, with cutting edge technology will allow our clinicians to obtain quicker and more accurate images. This new technology will reduce the length of time each scan takes, making the experience far less distressing for our young patients and allowing our clinicians to see more patients.
