A fostering services manager from Sheffield has competed an endurance course to raise cash for support young adults leaving foster or residential care.

Claire Hobson, who works for children’s services group Core Assets, completed a Tough Mudder course with 11 other employees.

It involved the group climbing, crawling, swimming, swinging, jumping and running around a 12 mile course, which also involved the team being electrocuted and being dumped in ice baths.

They completed the event to raise cash for the Rees Foundation, a charity set up to support young people or adults who have left foster or residential care.

Cash will also be donated to the Marie Curie Hospice.

Claire said: “It was an amazing effort by Team Core Assets, who have all achieved real personal satisfaction from completing the course, as well as raising money for two great charities close to all of our hearts.

“To date we’ve managed to raise an incredible £2,400.”
