A group of ladies are proving they really do have hearts of gold by taking up a massive challenge for charity.

Dressed in pink, the 12 members of the East Ardsley Angels, took part in the Pretty Muddy Race for Life on Saturday to raise cash for Cancer Research.

The event is a 5k muddy obstacle course at Temple Newsam, where participants tell cancer that ‘hell hath no fury like a woman in pink.’

The ladies started fundraising for the charity after their colleague from East Ardsley Primary School, Helen Pattison’s mum Jean, was told she had the disease and just last month, both Helen and Michelle Martin shaved their heads, which raised more than £1,400.

Fundraiser Julie Fletcher, who works at East ardsley Primary School and took part in the challenge, said: “We had a brilliant time, loads of mud, loads of fun.

“Our current ongoing total on our Just Giving page is a staggering £2,175. It’s unbelievable.

“We can’t quite believe how much we’ve raised and it’s just outstanding how many people are supporting us.”

More fundraising events are being organised by the ladies to raise even more money for Cancer Research.
