On Sunday 13th October, nine of our Public Services students attended the Mud Pack Challenge to assist with the smooth running and fundraising of the event.
The Mud Pack Challenge is a 5-10 mile muddy obstacle course, designed to raise money for the Hospice of St. Francis, who provide help to those living with, or recovering from serious illnesses. The hospice also advise those who are worried about their loved ones by recommending group activities and providing practical support for when someone special is no longer there.
The students helping were divided up and placed as marshals in two separate zones – each taking on an important role in keeping the participants safe and motivated! Their presence ensured the safety of the ‘Mud Packers’, as well as the smooth running of the event. They also contributed largely to the overall success of the event.
Our students, Robert Hubery, Sean White, Charlotte Bull, Ben Finlow, Aimee Jackson, Josh Price, Joe Osbourne, Harrison Green and Karl Budd helped to deliver a well-organised, professional and profitable event, which has raised an incredible amount of over £70,000 for the Hospice of St. Francis, with 653 Mud Packers taking part.
Thank you to the enthusiastic, positive team of students who helped to make the event possible, despite the rain!
