A group of friends from Lynn are planning to take on the Tough Mudder challenge next month to raise funds for Hunstanton charity, Families Against Neuroblastoma.

Daniel Featherby, 30, Lee Bishop, 28, Aaron Baker, 33, Andy Gibbs, 33, and Daniel High, 27, will be running the 12-mile obstacle course on July 12 with hopes of raising around £800 for the charity.

Daniel said: “We were going to do the challenge anyway and then our friend, who works for FAN, suggested raising money for them.

“She told us all about the work they do and some of us have kids, but we are lucky enough to all be healthy, we know others aren’t so lucky and we wanted to help those families.”

The charity helps UK children get the life-saving treatments they need, as well as providing days out, wishes and holidays, and campaigns for awareness and change.

The group will be taking on the Tough Mudder challenge at Kettering designed by the Special Forces to test their strength and stamina as they battle through mud, fire, ice water and 10,000 volts of electricity.

Daniel said: “This is the first time we’ve done anything like this but we all like a challenge. Some of us have been training, but some of us don’t like cardio very much.

“I feel like I could run it thanks to the training. I think some of the guys think they will struggle but we’ll all be fine on the day.

“We’ll crawl across the finish line if we have to!”

The group have raised around £120 so far, but need help to reach their target and raise the full £800 for FAN.
