Holker IT MD Matthew Metcalfe and his family took part in the Race for Life Pretty Muddy event in Preston – raising over £1,000 for Cancer Research.

Matthew, along with son Joshua, 13, partner Jeanette and her sister Laura scrambled over A-frames, crawled through the mud pit and had lots of fun on the obstacle course all in the name of charity. It was a dirty job, but someone had to do it.

In fact, it was so good they completed two laps after taking a wrong turn.

Matthew said:

“Cancer is happening right now, which is why I took part in a Race for Life Pretty Muddy to raise money and save lives.

“It was a great day out and my family enjoyed taking part – and in the process raising a good amount of money for a charity close to our hearts.”

Cancer affects one in two people during their lifetime. Money raised from sponsorship at these events helps Cancer Research continue their ground-breaking work to see more people surviving cancer.
