Duo all set to get muddy for cause

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A PAIR of clothes shop work­ers won’t be wor­ry­ing about fash­ion when they take part in a muddy run for char­ity.

Wendy Pat­tin­son and Beth Holt, who both work at Fat Face in the Grosvenor Cen­tre, are tak­ing part in the Pretty Muddy fundraiser at Tat­ton Park, a women only mud as­sault course in aid of Can­cer Re­search.

Beth, 22, will be run­ning with her mum, who has been treated for breast can­cer, and Wendy, 50, will be run­ning with her friend and neigh­bour, who has re­cov­ered from bowel can­cer.

Beth, a su­per­vi­sor at Fat Face, said: “It was my mum who wanted to do it, even though she didn’t re­ally know what was in­volved. So I said I’d do it with her and signed us both up – and then I told her about what it’s re­ally like once it was too late!

Wendy, 50, said: “It looks like it’s not so much a run as a walk from one hor­ri­ble thing to the next!

“I think we’ll be head­ing straight home for a bath af­ter­wards!”

Any­one wish­ing to spon­sor the pair should visit Fat Face.

The Pretty Muddy run is de­signed as a mud­dier, dirt­ier al­ter­na­tive to Can­cer Re­search’s tra­di­tional Race for Life and takes place on June 20.
