A muddy good effort by runners

A team of six women from the Ipswich office of financial advisors Brewin Dolphin entered into the Pretty Muddy Race for Life in aid of Cancer Research UK last month. The 5km race took place at Trinity Park and included ten gruelling obstacles along a muddy course. The event attracted over 3,500 participants, with women of all ages and abilities taking part in the event.

The Brewin Dolphin team completed the race in an impressive 35 minutes and have so far raised £450 for the charity with another £200 expected to come in.

Team member, Louise Summerfield, said: “Completing the muddy version of the Race for Life was great fun. We had to jump through tyres, crawl under cargo nets and commando crawl through muddy water, all for a fantastic cause. It was brilliant to represent Brewin Dolphin at the first Pretty Muddy Race for Life in Ipswich”.

In addition to this latest fundraising effort, staff at the Ipswich branch of Brewin Dolphin have so far this year raised £5000 for the Suffolk Community Foundation, £1100 for Brain Tumour Research, £600 for the Stroke Association and £500 for Inspire Suffolk.
