Hyndburn trio complete 'toughest assault course' in aid of youngsters
3:56pm Wednesday 14th August 2013 in News
A TRIO from a young people’s charity in Hyndburn completed one of the UK’s toughest assault courses to raise money for fun activities for youngsters.
Sharon Burch, 44, Jason Hayes, 36, and Paula Swainstone, 37, travelled to the Lake District to tackle Total Warrior – a 10,000m run through obstacles including the Shocker, live electric wires, and the Human Barbecue, a dash through four-foot flames – but the three colleagues finished.
Sharon said: “We’re not right in the head. I was left feeling sore but jubilant. It was a tough course but because we were doing it as a team it was also a lot of fun. We’re so proud of ourselves.”
Money can still be donated by texting YNOT13 plus the amount you would like to donate to 70070.
Sharon said: “We’re here to help young people in Hyndburn so the money is all going to be spent locally on young people.”
