Fundraising team Mencap Mudsters lives up to its name

Leamington Editorial 4th Sep, 2017   0

MUD, sweat and tears of joy were the order of the day for charity staff who survived the Autumn Wolf Run on Sunday (September 3).

A five-strong team known as the Mencap Mudsters took on the 10km challenge at Welsh Road Farm near Leamington.

The team from Heart of England Mencap included Di Yeoman, Suzanne Hotten, Nikki Drew, Chris Howkins and Jenna Haycock who braved the elements when they took on the course around woods, lakes and fields – and not least – a whole lot of mud.

The team managed to raise £800 for the charity which supports people with learning disabilities, and are hoping to secure as much sponsorship as possible.

Media and marketing officer Di Yeoman said: “We joined together and vowed to beat the Wolf Run so we can make a real difference in our customers’ lives.

“Having additional funds available means so much and enables them to do lots of fun and interesting activities that would otherwise not be open to them.”
