FUNDRAISERS from a Daresbury-based beauty and aesthetics company have raised more than £500 for Cancer Research UK.

The Fox Group employees, who are based in the international office in Daresbury Park, took part in Tatton Park’s 5k Pretty Muddy event which involves runners tackling a number of muddy obstacles in return for sponsorship.

These involved a climbing frame, mud pit tunnels, hurdles and a giant inflatable mud slide to end the course.

Both male and female employees took part after Cancer Research UK revamped its event series earlier this year, inviting men to join in for the first time in 26 years.

The Fox Group, which owns the UK rights to dermal filler, REVOLAX, has a global reach within the cosmetic industry and has used this to previously raise money for organisations such as Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.

Amy Lyons, lead marketing coordinator at Fox Group said: "It’s a fantastic activity to do with the team and a great way to raise money for a charity close to many hearts.

"We thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to Fox Group continuing to raise money for excellent causes."

Pretty Muddy aims to raise money to fund scientists, doctors and nurses to beat cancer sooner.

With the ambition to accelerate progress of cancer survival and see three in four patients surviving the disease by 2034, events such as Pretty Muddy are becoming increasingly popular alongside traditional Race for Life events.
