Swale ladies take to the mud for charity

Ladies from Swale Heating proved they were no stick-in-the-muds when they raised money for charity by taking part in the Race For Life Pretty Muddy challenge.

The team of seven, who all work in Swale Heating’s Contracts Department, crawled, climbed, slid and slipped their way around a 5km obstacle course at Maidstone’s Mote Park in the Race For Life Pretty Muddy challenge.

They took an hour to complete the course – which included 10 obstacles and plenty of mud – raising more than £2,000 for Cancer Research, £1,700 of which was donated by their colleagues.

Team member and Swale Heating Contracts Manager, Dawn Fennell, says: “It wasn’t too difficult but it was incredibly dirty. At one point we had to crawl through a pool of thick mud and we ended up having a mud flight which was great fun!

“Our work colleagues were fantastically supportive and really dug deep for the charity. It’s the first year we’ve ever done this but we certainly plan to do it again.”
