Bromley landlady completes seven-kilometre course

A pub landlady has raised more than £10,000 for charity after completing an extreme obstacle course.

Siobhan Humphrey, who runs the Red Lion in Bromley, and her friend and customer Nikki Clarke undertook the seven-kilometre Nuts Challenge in Dorking, traversing a staggering 120 obstacles.

As well as the £10,000 in sponsorship from pub regulars, Nikki raised a further £3,000 which she is hoping will be matched by her employer.

The money is being donated to St Christopher’s Hospice, a cause which the pub regularly supports.

“It really was an endurance test like no other,” said Ms Humphrey, who has run the pub for 22 years.

“I escaped mostly uninjured but it took a few days to recover! It was cold, wet and hard work, but we both had great fun.

“I always knew my customers were generous but I never imagined hitting five figures. When I came back from the event, absolutely covered in mud and totally exhausted, everyone in the pub stood up and clapped which was lovely.

“I am grateful to every single one for their support.”
