Muddy marvels raise 4,600

JEWISH Care Scotland was prepared to use dirty tactics for its latest fundraising venture.

On Sunday, 15 brave participants took part in a Tough Mudder Half at Drumlanrig Castle, Dumfries and Galloway.

As well as getting very muddy, the group raised 4,600 for the charity.

The participants included Lorraine Bennett, Richard Groden, Lee Groden, Bev Benshetrit, Philippa Bishop, Hazel Tenby, Alison Ure, Elspeth Campbell, Lynda Johnston, Andrea Fox, Lotta Cates, Bradley Kay, Susan Alexander, Gary Duncan and Chris Doherty.

They braved the challenge of a five-mile-long course, consisting of 14 challenging obstaclesm including Sewer Rat, Birth Canal and Mud Mile.

Team JCS completed the course in under three hours. Despite the rain holding off, they were all covered head to toe in mud by the end.

Andrea said: JCS is very close to my heart. It inspired me to do this challenge, even though I was completely out of my comfort zone.

I was quite nervous on the day, but the atmosphere was amazing and our group stuck together from start to finish.

We are really proud of what we accomplished.

On the journey home JCS chairman Dr Groden thanked participants.
