stroke should get the support they need to make the best possible recovery.
We're inviting the whole community to come to this fun day out and help us make
it an event to remember."

The Dirty Dozen Bring Home
ON Saturday, 7 May 2016, Cancer got to feel
the full fury of an army of women sick of it. Women of all ages who have lost
loved ones, friends and family flooded Victoria Park, in Warrington, to take part
in Cancer Research's Pretty Muddy 5K obstacle course.
For those who don't know
Pretty Muddy isn't a walk (or run) in the park. It's a muddy obstacle course
that woman of all ages and ability can traverse; and that's exactly what the
Nice 'n' Naughty Dirty Dozen have done.
The 13 strong team, clad in pink Nice 'n'
Naughty t-shirts tramped through the mud, pulled themselves under nets and
laughed their way down a rather dirty slide to finish things off. Luckily the
weather was amazing on Saturday but their main reason for smiling was the
amazing support they received from everyone who helped to sponsor them; the
combined total of money raised by The Nice 'n' Naughty The Dirty Dozen was a
Trish Murray Operations Manager of Nice 'n' Naughty was elated as she not only
finished the race, overcame her fear of both water and mud, but managed to get
346% over her expected target by raising £519.24 herself!
"It was a great day and fun was had by
all. I just want to thank everyone who took the time to donate and wish me
well." She said covered in mud, "I'm just ready to get a shower
and a glass of wine!"
If you would like to sponsor Trish please check her

donate with all proceeds going to Cancer Research UK.
