Duo all set to get muddy for cause
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.
