A fundraising duo preparing for a gruelling - and muddy - obstacle course stopped by the children's charity they are supporting to meet staff and supporters.
Amber Perchard, 24, and Sheree Von-Claire, 48, attended First Step’s latest Tasty Treats tea room event, in Tangmere Crescent, Hornchurch, to talk about their upcoming Nuclear Mud Run in Brentwood and the work they do for fostering agency Next Step.
The pair are set to take on the 6km race later this month, with colleagues Jenna Cutmore and Neil McCarthy.
Michelle Mitchell, fundraising manager for First Step, which supports youngsters with special needs and disabilities, thanked Amber and Sheree and said the event raised more than £189.
The next tea room, from 10am to 12.30pm on May 20, will be a celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday, featuring cream teas.
The special guest speaker will be Tony Matthews, who, from 11am, will talk about clubs and activities running across Havering, including those at myplace, Fairkytes Arts Centre and the leisure centres.
