Muck in with fundrais­ing event

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

PEO­PLE are urged to get filthy for char­ity by tak­ing part in a hospice’s in­au­gu­ral fundrais­ing event.

With only a few weeks to go un­til the Ren­nie Grove Hospice Care Muddy Mucker event on Sun­day, Novem­ber 16, the char­ity is en­cour­ag­ing more teams to sign up and raise money for lo­cal peo­ple with can­cer and other life-lim­it­ing ill­nesses.

The five-mile course in­cludes var­i­ous ob­sta­cles in­clud­ing crawl­ing through tun­nels and over climb­ing walls. Par­tic­i­pants are guar­an­teed to get muddy.

Build­ing and plumb­ing mer­chants Grant and Stone, which has branches in Amer­sham and Chal­font St Peter, has a team of 10 tak­ing part.

Mar­ket­ing man­ager for Grant and Stone, which has spon­sored an ob­sta­cle on the course, Dar­ren House, said: “Ev­ery­one’s re­ally look­ing for­ward to it and has been train­ing hard.

“Do­ing some­thing like this is great for team spirit, there is a lot of ban­ter about it and ev­ery­one at work is re­ally be­hind the team.”

Se­nior events fundraiser for Ren­nie Grove, Gemma Martin, says: “We’re ab­so­lutely de­lighted that hun­dreds of peo­ple have al­ready signed up to take part in our first Muddy Mucker chal­lenge, but we’d love to see more busi­nesses tak­ing ad­van­tage of this great team-build­ing op­por­tu­nity.”

The event will take part at Green Park in As­ton Clin­ton at 10am on Sun­day, Novem­ber 16. En­try costs £30 and is open to teams and in­di­vid­u­als. Par­tic­i­pants must be aged 16 and over.
