A trio of fundraisers from Burton-on-Trent Specsavers has raised more than £500 for the Make a Wish Foundation, by taking on the Tough Mudder challenge.

12-mile course of obstacles 

Clara James, Kerry Mills and James Gumb worked together to overcome a series of obstacles as they tackled the 12-mile course in aid of the children’s charity. As the fundraising trio exceeded their £500 target, James also agreed to have his head shaved – a pledge he made before taking to the Tough Mudder course.

To support their efforts, colleagues at Specsavers also hosted a bake sale and fundraised in store following the charity challenge.

‘The Tough Mudder certainly lived up to its name and we all really enjoyed getting stuck in,’ said James. ‘Make a Wish does some amazing work for children with life-threatening conditions, so to have raised so much money for them is fantastic. Thanks to everybody who supported us by making a donation!’

Set up in 1986, Make a Wish Foundation works to transform and enrich the lives of youngsters fighting life-threatening conditions. By granting special wishes to turn their dreams into reality, the charity helps to give families precious time together and memories to cherish forever.
