Loughborough colleagues brave mud for Rainbows

Loughborough colleagues brave mud for Rainbows

Colleagues from a Loughborough firm have raised £750 for Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People by getting mudddy in an extreme challenge.

Five team members from Anstey Wallpaper Company took on the Wolf Run last month in Leamington Spa.

The challenge saw, Natalie Drummond, Dan Johnson, Sean Kelly, Lauren McCabe and Maisie Morris, complete the 10k off road obstacle course. Between them, they mastered lake swims, mud pits, fallen trees and dense foliage.

The team said it was “tough but so worth it” as they raised £750 for Rainbows, which supports children with terminal and serious illnesses across the East Midlands.

Natalie Drummond, Senior Designer at Anstey Wallpaper Company, said:

“We laughed the whole way around the course, even when we were covered head to toe in mud and pond weed; we were still laughing.

“It was a great way of showing competitive spirit but we had to work as a team otherwise we would still be in that mud pit now. It’s fair to say those t-shirts will never be as white again. It was an amazing experience and an honour to do it for such a wonderful cause. We hope with the funds raised, Rainbows can keep doing its amazing work.”

Kate Golding, Head of Organisational Giving at Rainbows, added:

“What the team from Anstey did was incredible and it looked like they had so much fun. Without the support of companies like theirs, we would not be able to provide the vital services that we do to hundreds of families who need us. On behalf of all of the children and young people at Rainbows, I thank them from the bottom of our hearts.”
