Anna Wood who owns Anna Wood Bridal in Long Buckby took part in a 3km long course with her husband, making up two of the 400 individuals who went to Long Furlong Farm to complete the muddy obstacle. They completed the event in a wedding dress and suit to raise money for Harry Charlesworth, a four-year-old who has spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy and his ongoing care, which costs around £35,000 a year.
The couple along with 50 others who took part to support Harry raised an amazing total of £1,052.50.
Anna said, "I met Harry's grandmother at a business networking event and I heard Harry's story. Immediately I wanted to get involved and do something to help.
"I heard about the event but, rather than just taking part, I decided to do it in a wedding dress and cause a bit of a stir! If I could get that bit more attention for doing the course in a white wedding dress, it would raise more awareness of Harry and The Helping Harry Trust. Thankfully Aaron was fully behind the idea and joined me as my groom."
But Anna's help does not stop there. She's also donated a £1,000 voucher towards a wedding gown as a prize in a raffle and all the money is going to The Helping Harry Trust. The winner will be picked on 5th of November tickets are now available with one entry costing five pounds or three entries costing ten pounds.
Hayley Charlesworth, Harry's mother and founder of The Helping Harry Trust, said, "Local businesses supporting what we're doing helps us provide Harry with life-enhancing and prolonging physiotherapy, home adaptations, equipment and care. Support like this gives us strength when times are hard. Thank you so much, Anna and the rest of Harry's team for your continued support."
