Newark housing provider gets muddy to raise thousands for children’s charity

Staff at Newark and Sherwood Homes at the Mud Run

Staff from Newark and Sherwood Homes battled mud, obstacles and water to raise almost £2,000 for children’s charity, Make A Wish.

12 staff members took part in the challenging Wild Mud Run last month (Mar) at Osmaston Manor, Derbyshire, and managed to raise a substantial amount for seriously ill children.

The money raised will be donated to the children’s foundation, which specialises in helping to make life-changing wishes come true for children with critical illnesses.

Arron Stobbs health and safety officer at Newark and Sherwood Homes, helped to organise the fundraising event.

He said: “We are all really proud to have completed the course and raise what is a fantastic amount. We all had so much fun taking part, even if we did get a bit muddy! It is amazing what a wish can mean to a child going through such a life changing experience, and we are thrilled that we have contributed to making more children’s wishes come true.”

Rebecca Rance, chief executive of Newark and Sherwood Homes said: “We are all delighted to have raised so much money for such a charitable cause. Our staff are truly amazing and they are always willing to go the extra mile. The charity has already contacted us to say thank you and how much difference our money will make.

“Our staff’s fundraising will allow more life changing wishes come true for children with life-threatening conditions, and I am really proud of everyone who took part.”
