Muddy Mayhem raises thousands for local hospice care

More than 600 muddy warriors from across East and North Hertfordshire and beyond have taken on a 5K muddy obstacle course, raising thousands of pounds in vital funds for two local hospices.

Hosted in partnership with our friends at Isabel Hospice, Muddy Mayhem saw participants take on a challenging 5K course at the scenic Woodhall Estate in Watton-at-Stone, which included a number of natural and man-made obstacles. There was also a 1km Mini Muddy course for Under-11s adjacent to the thriving event village which hosted a number of vendors.

Elle McGregor is HR Officer at Adversa Recruitment Limited (team pictured above), which sponsored the event:

“We loved taking part in such a fun event which gave us the opportunity to raise awareness and money for such an important cause. The £1,500+ that we raised in sponsorship as a team is enough to pay for four beds on the Inpatient Unit for a whole day. We are so proud to be able to provide this kind of support and can’t wait to do it all over again next year!”

Hayley Cocks was one of a number of Hospice at Home nurses that took part. She added:

“It was a really beautiful course at Muddy Mayhem. We all really enjoyed it apart from the swamp area of the route which was particularly muddy! It was fantastic to have such great support as we went along and all to raise money for local hospice care to keep our services available for the community.”

Richard Harbon, our Head of Events, said:

“Muddy Mayhem proved to be a wonderful occasion for everyone involved. The sun really did shine down for Garden House Hospice Care and Isabel Hospice as 600 people of all ages took part in our two courses at Woodhall Estate, raising thousands of pounds of much-needed funds in the process. A big thank you to everyone who took part and to everyone who helped put on and support the event.”

Adam Brockett is Head of Community & Events at Isabel Hospice:

“It was great to welcome so many people to our inaugural muddy event, in partnership with our friends at Garden House Hospice Care. We have been working hard on this event over the winter months and were thrilled to see the sunshine greet our wonderful participants as they supported their chosen Hospice to continue to support patients and their families in our local communities. We’d also like to say a huge thank you to our fantastic supporters and volunteers from both Hospices.”
