Intrepid employees from a Dereham-based manufacturer have completed an obstacle course to raise money in memory of a former colleague.

John Phillips died in January and four ex-colleagues at drinking water appliance maker Zip Water UK took part in Tough Mudder Scotland.

The team ran the 10.5-mile race in aid of St Catherine’s Hospice in Preston, where Mr Phillips was cared for during his illness.

Working as a team, sales manager Robbie Ferguson, regional sales managers Dan Callaghan and Jody Lowe, and specification manager Michael Quinn waded through unknown quantities of mud and 25 obstacles to complete the course in three and a half hours.

The team have raised £480 for St Catherine’s Hospice, surpassing their original £450 target.

The company has an office and warehouse in Bertie Ward Way, Dereham.
