Getting dirty and all for a good cause
STAFF and customers from several Chesham pubs will get mucky for charity at the weekend.
Red Squirrel Brewery and its shops in Chesham, Amersham and Berkhamsted have decided to support Rennie Grove Hospice Care this year.
The brewery has already sponsored a charity dinner, which raised more than £30,000 – enough to fund a Hospice at Home nurse for a year.
Hoping to raise more money, manager of Chesham Brewery Shop Megan Wright decided to get a team together to take part in Rennie Grove Hospice Care’s Muddy Mucker on Sunday.
She said: “This is the plan again [to raise money] and we would love to be a part of achieving this, but this time by taking part. We also have the support of The Red Lion pub in Chesham and the Jolly Sportsman.”
Megan and her colleague Peter will take part as well as the manager of The Red Lion Phil and his staff member Robin as well as staff from the Jolly Sportsman and customers from all the pubs.
The Muddy Mucker is a five mile muddy, professional assault course challenge, with more than 30 obstacles such as tunnels, mud crawls, monkey cars, rope swings and a tyre wall.
Megan added: “I’m not to sure if any of us know what we have let ourselves in for!”
Rennie Grove Hospice Care is a charity providing care and support for patients in Bucks and Herts diagnosed with lifelimiting illness.
Sunday’s event will also have a ‘Mucker village’ with live music to get you feeling energised as well as a variety of food and drink stalls so participants can refuel after the challenge.
Megan added: “Spectators are welcome to come along and support us and soak up the atmosphere. I think it will be a laugh for a local charity.”
