Hun­dreds muck in for fundraiser

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

HUN­DREDS of peo­ple got mucky for char­ity at the week­end. Some 600 peo­ple took part in Ren­nie Grove Hospice Care’s first ever Muddy Mucker event at Green Park, in As­ton Clin­ton on Sun­day.

Run­ners tack­led 28 chal­leng­ing ob­sta­cles over a five-mile course to raise money to support lo­cal pa­tients with can­cer and other life-lim­it­ing ill­nesses and their fam­i­lies.

It is hoped the event will raise more than £30,000 for the char­ity.

A four-strong team from Nunn Hay­ward, in Ger­rards Cross, regis­tered at the sug­ges­tion of Serena Harrap, who per­suaded her col­leagues Iona Stayt, from Bea­cons­field, Anne Tay­lor from Che­sham and Stephanie Fabia from Loud­wa­ter to join her.

Friends Marta Ea­ton, who donned a red wig and devil horns, and Peter Ashcroft, who wore a suit jacket and a black curly wig, both from Amer­sham, raised more than £350.

Also tak­ing part were the Mud Loving Crim­i­nals made up of brothers Scott and Craig Peter­son, Han­nah Dav­i­son, Jess Danby and Scott Prosser, all from Che­sham, and Mikar Pater from Ald­bury.

A team of nine teach­ers and support staff from Lit­tle Chal­font Pri­mary School also took part.
