We are delighted (and astonished!) that Falco’s Accountant, Netty Barlow, has (yet again) raised over £350 for Cancer Research UK by participating in the Stoke-on-Trent Pretty Muddy 5k ‘mud run’ event at Central Forest Park in Hanley on Sunday 12th September.
Netty put her best foot forward and joined hundreds of women and children to tackle a 5k muddy obstacle course, hurdling over obstacles into piles of mud, weaving through spiders webs, scaling climbing frames and tyres, crawling through tunnels, scramble nets and mud pits and finally racing down an inflatable mud chute!
After the event Netty said “Cancer can only be eradicated with more money being put into research, to find out what causes it, how we can stop it, and how to detect it earlier. So it’s worth dressing up and running through the muddy obstacle course to help people that I will never meet, but they can be with their families longer”.
Jeremy Green, Managing Director, added “It astonishes me how Netty does this year after year, her dedication to the Cancer Research cause, which we know is so close to her heart, is incredible. She single-handedly organises events, raffles, bake-offs, all sorts! All in such a great cause and all in her own time, she deserves a medal, (she really does)”.
‘Stoke-on-Trent Pretty Muddy’ was organised by charity Cancer Research UK as part of its Race for Life fundraising campaign.
All of the Falco team are very proud of what Netty has achieved and the large amount of money raised for such a good cause; Netty is an inspiration to all the staff here, having had great successes with other fund raising events such as McMillan coffee mornings, Race For Life and Children in Need amongst others – she is a star!
