Matthew gets Pretty Muddy for charity

Matthew Metcalfe with some Joshua after taking part in Pretty Muddy, Preston, for charity

Matthew Metcalfe and his family took part in the Race for Life Pretty Muddy event in Preston – raising over £630 for Cancer Research.

Matthew, MD of HOLKER, 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.
