A TEAM of 31 friends and family of a sick little girl took on an army-style assault course - raising more than £10,000 to try and find her a cure.

Georgia Strudwick, 10, from Purley, was diagnosed with the life-threatening neurological disorder Rett syndrome when she was two, and her parents Lisa and Jeff have ever-since been raising money for Cure Rett, which funds research into finding a cure for the disease.

Their latest fundraising escapade was to take a team of 31 friends and family to the Nuts Challenge, a 7km race with 100 obstacles in Dorking, Surrey, on August 30.

Georgia's 10 and 12-year-old cousins Amelia and Oliver Bardsley also took part.

Lisa said: "We all got lots of cuts and bruises and everyone ached for a couple of days but we loved it. My husband and I feel very lucky to have an amazing amount of friends and family who stand by us raising money for Cure Rett.

"Georgia is a very special little girl who everyone loves and makes us feel proud."
