Clifton pupils choose Small Steps as this year’s charity

Tough Mudder is known to many as one of the most challenging fundraising events one can take part in. But for a group of people who describe themselves as ‘a crack team of the UK’s wobbliest, booziest and most distressingly unfit reprobates’ it’s going to be demanding to say the least.
