‘Fantastic’, ‘Brilliant’ and ‘Loved it’ were just some of the comments from the two Cyprotex teams who took part in the annual ‘It’s a Knockout’ event which was held in the grounds of Alderley Park on the 20th July 2017. It was a beautiful warm sunny evening, and a BBQ and ice-cream van were brought in to feed the hungry contestants.
In total 23 teams lined up to compete for the trophy. Huge inflatables, mazes, giant dartboards, soap-suds and plenty of water were all part of the fun. Cyprotex were recognised by their navy blue #RESEARCHNEVERSTOPS T-shirts, kindly provided by Cyprotex’s parent company, Evotec. Surprisingly, Cyprotex escaped without any major injuries but unfortunately failed to compete for the top places – maybe we can treat this as a practice session for next year!
Dr Paul Walker, Head of Toxicology at our UK site, participated in the event, and commented, ‘Fun events such as these are great for building bonds with your work colleagues and encourage teamwork. We will definitely be putting our name down for next year.’
