Military Wives go commando
A CHANCE to get muddy and raise cash for charity saw hundreds of people enter the famed Commando Challenge.
Teams from Plymouth Community Healthcare and even the military Wives Choir entered the event, pictured above.
The Commando Challenge is now in its 22nd year and utilises the world famous Royal Marines Endurance training course, which is still used today as a training ground for new recruits.
Staff from Plymouth Community Healthcare entered and raised over £1,000 for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust and Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund.

Ruth Gilfillan, contract accountant at Plymouth Community Healthcare, said: "Plymouth Community Healthcare wanted to contribute further to the community which it already plays such a big part in.
"We decided to do the Commando Challenge as a lot of us were quite physically active already and this would push us, as well as being fun on the day. We really had a great time and I would recommend it to anyone in future."
Dan O'Toole, finance director for Plymouth Community Healthcare, added: "Completing the challenge wasn't easy, but we received such great support and sponsorship from the rest of the staff, and family and friends.
"We'll be adding our combined total to Plymouth Community Healthcare's miles for the LoveLIFE campaign."
Meanwhile 11 ladies from the Plymouth MWC also took part. Becki Fleming, one of the participants, said: "We lost one to casualty with an ankle injury and have managed to raise £947 so far for Devon Air Ambulance.
"The girls waded through rivers, crawled through tunnels and went under the sheep dip."
