Sarah Smith, administrator at UK Coal’s Lodge House opencast mine near Smalley, faced a tough challenge last month for charity.

Sarah, 30 (pictured far right) was part of a team that ran the X-Runner wild thing extreme 10km obstacle course in Brailsford, near Derby.

The team, which also includes Sarah’s husband, raised money for the Little Princess Trust which provides real-hair wigs for children undergoing treatment for cancer.
