Marsdens supports Croyde Scrumptious Trail 2017

Written by Catherine Coad on

Captain Marsden and the holiday cottage heroes had a brilliant day at the Croyde Scrumptious Trail on Sunday. 

We were again delighted to be the main sponsor of the event for the second year in a row. The trial is a 10 mile walk organised by Over and Above, an independent charity which supports the work of the Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust.

The theme was ‘Super Heroes’ so our team of four walkers and one runner dressed appropriately and enjoyed flying through Croyde, Saunton Sands, Georgeham and Putsborough sampling truly scrumptious local produce. We had yoghurt and granola, chocolate brownie, bacon rolls, rum cocktails, soup, scones, pate on sour bread, honey and chutney on crackers, strawberries and meringue, curry and flapjack – and went home weighing more than at the start!

Huge congratulations also to our New Business Manager, Oliver McCarron for coming an incredible 2nd place out of the 300 entries! 

What a great day, for a great cause! We'll be there again next year! Here are a few pictures we thought we’d share with you of the day:
