Hesley Wood Scout Camp in Chapeltown became a mudbath for the good cause when it hosted Mud Madness, a new fundraiser.

Almost 200 adventurers waded through a mire of muck and clambered over an obstacle course to raise money for the hospice’s work.

It raised at least £1,100.

Families of all ages joined in the fun, including Barnsley mum Dawn Cusworth and a team of 15 friends and family, who took part in memory of her daughter, Mia. The hospice gave Mia’s family important time together after she died in September 2018 aged nine.

Helen Mower, head of fundraising at Bluebell Wood, said: “We are so grateful to everyone who had fun in the mud on behalf of the children and families we support.”
