Eight year old Evie turned up for Mission Mud with her Mum – and bundles of enthusiasm.
She explained she was keen to take part as she is a member of Soham 2nd Brownies and wanted to earn her Charities Interest’s Badge. This has three parts – Promote, Support and Thank.
“I had so much fun! Getting sponsorship for having a great time is a win-win. My favourite bit was being in the mud. My arms and legs have a couple of little bruises but I don’t mind“
The JustGiving page that was set up for Evie and her Mum, Nicola and they raised a fantastic £150 from their friends and family.
A week after the event Evie sent a letter to the Charity thanking her for arranging this event and saying how much she enjoyed herself.
Sarah Clayton, Community Fundraiser commented:
“Evie is such a joy, she should be extremely proud of herself and I was thrilled to get her letter and see she had received her Brownies badge. Thank you Evie, we are proud of you!”
“We are always delighted when young supporters take on challenges for Arthur Rank Hospice Charity. Please do get in touch if we can help you achieve a charity badge within your uniformed organization.”
