Craig and Jade Manthorpe, both 30, are hoping to raise £3,000 for three Norfolk charities that support unwell children.

The couple from Bradwell, near Great Yarmouth, suffered four miscarriages and the loss of their newborn daughter Tyler Lily within 24 hours of being born in February 2018.

But in February this year, they celebrated the arrival of their rainbow baby, daughter Harper.

The couple will be taking part in the Tough Mudder obstacle course in August alongside family and friends to raise money for East Anglia's Children's Hospices, Jesse's Anchor and Finnbar's Force.
