A CHARITY that provides therapies and support to physically impaired children sent a team of nearly 90 supporters to join a Total Warrior obstacle race.

Supporters of Chester-le-Street-based charity Heel and Toe were raising as much as possible to provide free conductive therapy for children with cerebral palsy and other physical disabilities. The charity offers its services at a reduced cost as part of its ‘child’s pot’ initiative.

Through the scheme, people can take part in one of the organised events, with any money raised above the minimum sponsorship to go into a ‘child’s pot’. That money can then be used on any of the paid services.

The team raised more than £16,000 from the Total Warrior challenge, which consisted of 25 punishing obstacles, including mud, fire and ice.

A spokesman for the charity said: “The team was amazing and the charity is so proud of everyone who took part. The teamwork shown was outstanding."
