It was a case of mud, mud, glorious mud, for six Brentwood School Second Year girls who wallowed in the stuff to raise over £1700 for charities close to their hearts.
The six best friends entered as a team in last Sunday’s 3km Nuclear Races event at the Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker raising much-needed funds for The YJS Trust and Saint Francis Hospice.
The YJS Trust was set up in memory of Amelia Anderson’s grandmother, Yvonne Stewart, who died of cancer in 2003. The aim of the Trust is to raise money to help people with cancer lead better lives.
Supporting Amelia’s fund-raising endeavours were Frankie Collins, Lottie Lloyd, Lauren Burgin, Anneliese Gennings and Lucy Holloway. The friends also used the obstacle mud run to raise money for Saint Francis Hospice who looked after Amelia’s uncle before he passed away last year.
Mrs Nina Anderson explained: “My mum passed away from cancer nearly 13 years ago and my family and I set up our Trust and have been raising hundreds of thousands of pounds ever since.
“The girls had a brilliant morning and an amazingly fun time. I couldn’t be prouder of them.”
