Babington Runners Raise £500 for Charity

Posted by: Andre Post Date: 29th April 2015

Five members of staff at Babington battled fire, water and mud earlier this month, to raise money for local charity Me&Dee.

The XRunner Wild Mud Run took place on the 18th April, at the spectacular Osmaston Manor in Derbyshire. Participants completed either a 5k or 10k run, tackling obstacles including giant walls, cargo nets, lakes, mud pits, and monkey bars.

Team Babington raised £515.60 for Me&Dee, a Derby-based charity that helps terminally ill people enjoy precious last moments with their families. Founder Maria Hanson set up the charity in 2006, and provides more than two hundred breaks each year, as well as supporting oncology wards across the UK.

Fully self-funded, Me&Dee only works with volunteers, and all donations go straight towards creating memorable experiences. Babington’s donation will be enough to cover week-long seaside breaks for two families.

Luke Ashburner, who completed the 10k run, said, “It was extremely tough, but by the end I felt like I could do it all over again… it was muddy good fun!”
