A mother clambered over obstacles and waded through water to raise funds for the pre-school which went the extra mile for her autistic son.

Katie Rooke was joined by Chatteris Produce World colleagues Nick Howard, Linda calite, Troy Akred and Tim Davidson for the 5km insane terrain mud run at Grange Farm near Peterborough.

Her son Ethan attended an early years group (the little saints room) at All Saints Academy in March, but his learning difficulties meant he has not been able to progress through to pre-school.

All Saints agreed to let the four-year-old stay on for another year while a place was sorted out for him at Meadowgate School in Wisbech, where he will start in September.

The group’s efforts have raised £1,100 for the school, which will go towards much needed equipment.

Mrs Rooke said: “We did this to thank you for all the help that they have given to Ethan who will be leaving there at the end of the summer term and starting at Meadowgate in September. They have been absolutely amazing.”
