Get­ting dirty and all for a good cause

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.”
