Hesley Wood Scout Camp in Chapeltown was a mud-bath on Saturday… all for a good cause!

The camp was the scene of Mud Madness, a new fundraiser for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

Almost 200 muddy adventurers waded through mires of muck and clambered over an obstacle course to raise much needed funds for the hospice’s work with children,  

young people and their families from throughout South Yorkshire and neighbouring counties.

Mud Madness has 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 passed away in September 2018 aged nine.
