Saint Francis Hospice

They’re used to telling children to stay away from mud - but a group of staff from a Dagenham school will be putting that aside for one day to take on a charity challenge.

Thirteen teachers and support staff from St Peter’s Catholic Primary School will be taking on Mission Mud - a 5km obstacle challenge - in support of Saint Francis Hospice.

They were signed up for a day of zip wires, a death slide and plenty of mud by the Goresbrook Road school’s headteacher, Clare Scott.

“This is a great opportunity to bring the team together to raise money for a fantastic charity,” she said.

Teacher Charlotte Stock added: “I am a bit nervous but I know it will be great fun!”

There are still places available for the Mission Mud event, taking place at Parsonage Farm, Brentwood, on Sunday, October 7.
