STAFF from Bicester’s CMS Financial Management braved mud, ice-cold water and electric shocks to raise £3,000 for Help for Heroes in Britain’s first Tough Mudder event.

The 12-mile obstacle course, devised by US special forces, was held on the Boughton House Estate in Kettering.

Staff members Dave Marler, Julie Wigg and Dave Carter completed the course with friends John Turney, Chris Jackson, Ryan Carter, Stewart Sharp and Edd Biles.

Mr Carter said: “We awoke next day stiff and achy and covered in cuts and bruises, but with a real sense of achievement especially as none of us had even run 12 miles before.”
