Warrior spirit for Royston funeral director Andy

A Royston funeral director has slogged through waist-deep boggy ditches, swam through freezing cold water, and carried builders’ buckets filled with rocks, sand bags and huge logs in order to raise money for a valued hospice in North Herts.
Andy Mcfadyen of Newlings of Royston took part in the Cambridgeshire Spartan Race at Elton Hall, and raised more than £1,000 for the Garden House Hospice in the process.
Andy said: “I would like to thank everyone for their support and their kind donations for the hospice.
“The course was described as more than 5km in distance with 15 obstacles, and I found that it pushed me to my limit.
“After a brief warm up I set off and we were immediately going over a set of energy sapping 4ft walls.”
