Hibberts Gets Dirty for Charity

Created by

A team of 15 fundraisers from Hibberts Solicitors donned their trainers to take part in the challenging Tough Mudder event at Cholmondeley Castle on Saturday (9th September).

The group splashed through trenches and climbed over walls in a bid to raise money for Crewe based charity, Autism Networks which is close to the heart for a member of staff who has been volunteering there for years.

They raised approximately £1,193 and team leader Carolyn Brooksbank said: “Everyone did such a fantastic job and we had so much fun. Tough Mudder is renowned for being just that – tough. But we all had the end goal in mind and were determined to raise some money for this very worthy, local charity.”

Tackling the course, the team had to cover 10.7 miles and defeat over 20 obstacles. All but one team member, Partner at Hibberts Stewart Bailey, had never taken part in Tough Mudder before. The firm held group training sessions but generally, many people had their own training regime. It took the team between three and four and a half hours to complete.

John Hannon, founder and chairperson at Autism Networks, commented: “It is a fantastic commitment from the team at Hibberts. We appreciate anything anyone wants to give to us but they really put themselves through a lot to raise some money for us.”

Autism Networks is a volunteer led charity based in the centre of Crewe. With a belief that activities should promote physical and social development, communication and self-motivation in an encouraging, friendly, supportive and fun environment.

A small group of parents established the charity in 2002 and by 2006 had raised enough money to open a facility to support all of those that are affected by autism.
