Defence Academy Damsels– Mud, Mud and More Mud

22 June 2018 / Categories: DA News and Events

For the second year running the Damsels in Defence have donned their Pink and taken part in the 5km Pretty Muddy event in Lydiard Park, Swindon to raise funds for Cancer research along with thousands of other like minded ladies.


All dressed in pink, with their team names on the back of their vests (thank you Jan), they set off in good spirits to tackle the 5km muddy obstacle course on a beautiful sunny morning.    Lots of fun was had by all, space hoppers, ‘A’ Frames and Mud tunnels with the usual finale - a large inflatable slide ending in a rather deep pool of mud!   They completed the course in just under an hour, but the team stuck together from start to finish.   Finishing covered in mud , they all had a fantastic time and all had smiles on our faces.

Lieutenant Colonel Liz Nelson, Technology School, Defence Academy said "This is our second year supporting this wonderful event. It has been great to be able to join in with the community to support a cause that is very close to the hearts of many people."

A fantastic effort by the ladies raising over £1700 for this amazing and worthy charity.  They would like to thank all their colleagues and Defence Academy friends for sponsoring them along the way. Thank you  everyone for your support.
