The Fire Fighters Charity is looking for athletes who are up for an extreme challenge to join its Tough Mudder team at Boughton House on May 30 or 31 and help raise funds for injured fire service personnel.

Tough Mudder is a ten mile challenge which features a number of obstacle courses.

Laura Harden, from the Fire Fighters Charity, said: “All those participating will be raising funds for The Fire Fighters Charity, which supports injured firefighters and their families.

“Every year, thousands of firefighters are injured whilst protecting the public.

“With no minimum fundraising amount we are looking for participants to join our team to ensure we have a great presence on the day raising awareness of The Fire Fighters Charity and we ask that each person raise as much as they are able to in sponsorship for our Charity, to help us continue to deliver our much needed services across the UK.

“Every 37 seconds in the UK, firefighters are called to an incident, putting their lives on the line, and sometimes sustaining physical injuries while carrying out their duties. The Fire Fighters Charity is here for firefighters during their times of need, and assists thousands of individuals every year by providing treatment and support services.”
