Brave nurses take on Commando Challenge
7:00pm Monday 28th October 2013 in Devon
NURSES from Crediton braved mud and icy water on the notorious Commando Challenge in East Devon and raised over £700 for charity.
The eight staff members from the NHS complex care team competed under the name Crediton Community Angels.
They were put through their paces on the Royal Marines’ Commando Assault Course at Woodbury Common with hundreds of participants from across the UK, facing obstacles such as the Sheep Dip, Crocodile Pit, Peter’s Pool and underground tunnels.
The team finished 16th out of the 34 in the 4k fun challenge, and raised £760 for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust and Royal Marine charities.
Michele Baxendale-Nichols, community nurse team manager, said: “It was a great team-building experience which has enhanced the working relationships in the complex care team in Crediton.”
