More than £75,000 has been raised so far following Peace Hospice Care's muddy obstacle course challenge, which took place on Saturday 24th September in Chiswell Green, St. Albans, with donations still rolling in.

More than 700 people took part in the event to tackle 40 obstacles set out over five miles. Many companies also took part, including St. Albans based, SA Law and Specsavers Watford, which saw husband and wife, Terence and Ruth Ritchie compete against each other!

Peter Watson, Events and Community Fundraising Manager at Peace Hospice Care, said: "The event was a great success! Congratulations to everyone who took part - this has helped to raise vital funds for Peace Hospice Care's services. We're also very grateful to Bahlsen, Aitchison Raffety and My Citygate for supplying refreshments, sponsoring the beer tent and an obstacle."

Every year Peace Hospice Care needs £5 million to run and develop its services; there are a variety of ways you can get involved and help the Hospice reach its target. For more information please visit the fundraising page or call 01923 330330.
