Hundreds muck in for fundraiser
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.
