VOLUNTEERS are needed for a muddy fundraising event.

Pretty Muddy Essex, which raises cash for Cancer Research, will take place at Basildon’s Gloucester Park on Saturday, June 28.

Participants will be starting in groups of 250, every 15 minutes, from 10am until around 4.30pm.

Organisers are looking for volunteers as marshals on the obstacles. No experience is necessary – every marshal team will be lead by a key volunteer, who will brief them on the day.

All volunteers receive a t-shirt and refreshments.

People can find out more, and register, at www.raceforlife.org/volunteer.
