Murray’s entered a team of 4 for this year's relay race, along with over 50 schools, charities and businesses from South Derbyshire.
We had fantastic fun and ran four obstacle-filled laps in 4 minutes 11 seconds - even with our aprons and top hats! All of the days proceeds are going to Sport Relief.
Sue, Dave, Megan, Angela and Joan were invited to Central Jamia Mosque Rizvia for their open evening, which was extremely interesting and enabled us to learn more about their culture and funeral requirements.
Whilst Danny visited Rosliston WI, to give a presentation and answer any questions they had about all aspects of the Role of the Funeral Director. https://www.thewi.org.uk/…/find-a-wi/rosliston-and-cauldwell.

Murray's were honoured to attend the National Memorial Arboretum for the unveiling of the Catenian Memorial, to remember all those Catenians, their families and friends who suffered, were wounded or have given their lives in conflicts since their foundation in 1908.
This is a permanent memorial which was blessed on Saturday 13th July 2019 at the Arboretum in Staffordshire by the Archbishop of Birmingham, His Grace Bernard Longley.
On Sunday, 2nd June, Sue and Danny took on the gruelling challenge of completing the Summer Wolf Run to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society. For over three hours, they battled dozens of obstacles, pools of mud, treacherous rivers and a 10km run, all whilst being pummelled by rain! Somehow they managed to cross the finish line with a smile on their face, no doubt thanks to the generous donations they received from supporters.
