Previous It's a Knockouts and other fund raising by Amelie's family have helped collect funds for electric wheelchair, transport and other adaptations for her as well as other children with similar needs.

Amelie had her own team at the event for the first time last year and even managed to take part in some events with the help of her friends.

The competition takes place between 10am and 6pm and as well as being able to watch the teams, crowds will be able to enjoy a funfair, barbecue, face painting, glitter and stalls.
