Clarty Bairns

Do you know a youngster who loves getting mucky?

What is it?

Clarty Bairns, organised by Challenge Northumberland is a mini muddy obstacle course for children – think tough mudder but more fun and aimed at kids. If you want to have fun with all the family doing something a little different together then give this challenge a go.

What is involved?

The 3km obstacle course involves climbing, crawling, scrambling, getting wet and of course… getting muddy! If you want to have fun with all the family doing something a little different together then give this challenge a go. The event will be held at Broomley Grange, which sits in 22 acres of private grounds in the stunning county of Northumberland near to Hadrian's Wall and Europe's largest man-made lake, Kielder Water.

The obstacle course is suitable for children aged from 6-17 however must be accompanied by an adult. One adult can look after up to three children. Here we know how important it is to make the most out of life and why every memory should be cherished. Build some stronger family relationships and get healthier and fitter together, building your confidence and creating happy memories to last a lifetime.

We don’t want to set a fundraising target for you, but we wanted to let you know how your sponsorship can help us provide the care and support we give every day.


£20 can provide one hour of nursing care
Our nursing team are on hand 24-hours a day to care, comfort and support patients, children and their families from the across the North East.


£45 can fund an hour's bereavement support
Children often struggle to come to terms with the death of a loved one and our trained staff are available to provide support to friends and relatives when they need it most. Many people find it helpful to talk about their thoughts and feelings with someone who is not directly involved.


£60 can pay for baking and craft equipment.
Providing sensory fun is a great way to engage our children and young adults who come to the Hospice for respite care. The smells and textures from baking and being creative can help stimulate their senses and provide a sense of achievement – as well as being lots of fun!


£100 can buy musical instruments and sensory toys
Sensory toys and musical instruments are a great way to encourage communications of the children and young people who stay with us. Our music therapist works with the children to help them express themselves through touch and sound.
