Our Clifton Nurseries and Gavin Jones Ltd team would like to thank all our sponsors and Perennial for supporting us at the Nuts Challenge for HortAid. 

Our brave and muddy team consisted of Alan, Jono, Eli, Gary, Carlo and Tom - and last Sunday (18th September 2016) they relished the challenge of this 5K+ assault course with over 60 obstacles. They were delighted to be the 2nd fastest team and huge congratulations to Eli who won the 'Golden Fork' awards for the fastest woman.

All the money raised goes to Perennial, the industry charity helping horticulturalists in need. And it's not too late to sponsor us - please show your support for our muddy efforts by donating on our Just Giving page

The course itself was incredibly muddy - we had to wade through cold water up to our necks, stumble through 5km of mud, climb scramble nets, crawl through muddy water, pull ourselves out of slippery muddy ditches, climb over piles of tyres - as the name suggests, it was a 'Nuts Challenge'.
