Muddy Fundraiser raises £1,500 for Martha

Posted on 1 October 2018 | No comments

Martha joined forces with MYPT on Saturday to hold our first ever Martha Assault Course at Betteshanger Park in Deal. We were very fortunate with the weather as the sun shone but there was no escape for the teams who still got wet and dirty in the water obstacles and trenches. With several getting stuck in the mud!

Thank you to all the teams who signed up and took part including Sandwich Coop, Paula Pilates, MYPT, Discovery Park and Martha Trust

Special thanks to our event sponsors MYPT, Barretts Citroen and DS, Brandon Tool Hire Dover , NWR Ltd, Energy Innovation Company. Thanks also to Deal Inflatables for children’s inflatables and Lillyroos supplied hot food and drinks with a donation of sales going to Martha. And lastly to Pete Holloway who handcrafted a beautiful wooden spoon trophy, Nicky’s Therapies for providing free massages and to Sophie for volunteering her time to help out.

Our eldest participant was 74 year old Maurice Newman who said “ The course was brilliant and tested everybody-I would definitely do it again next year for this great charity”

Director of MYPT Jay Ingram said “ Thank you to all participated in the 1st ever Martha Assault Course- keep getting behind us as this event has such potential to grow and Martha Trust are a brilliant local charity that supported people that need our help”
