Construction company co-workers are taking on a superhero challenge to help bereaved children.
Some 12 staff from King’s Lynn-based Bespoke Norfolk Group are starting a 21-day Tough Mudder fundraiser which involves physical activities inspired by Marvel teams and characters from the Avengers to X-Men before and after work.
Throughout the challenge each person will travel 81 miles and perform 1,400 reps of different exercises.
It is raising money for Norfolk charity Nelson’s Journey which supports young people who have experienced the death of a significant person.
It comes as the charity has seen a drop in donations due to coronavirus.
