The 23 employees from Blanco UK will take on the challenge on Sunday, October 13.

Mud Pack is held on the grounds of Ashridge House near Berkhamsted, and involves tackling a five or 10-mile muddy obstacle course as a team. All money raised goes towards the Hospice of St Francis, who provide support to those dealing with serious illnesses.

Managing director Simon Hart said: "Blanco UK are proud and excited to be taking part in Mud Pack this October in support of the Hospice and the life-changing work they do.

"We believe it is hugely important to support local charities that provide outstanding care, helping people cope through very difficult times."
