Three Peckforton Castle workers near Nantwich are lacing up their trainers to tackle the Manchester 10k  in aid of Christie’s.

Matthew Naylor, Mike Auld and Emily Stephenson will be joining 40,000 other runners on Sunday (May 26).

The trio are hoping to raise £1,500 for The Christie – a charity close to Matthew’s heart as his close friend Oliver Wilson lost his dad, Manchester legend Anthony H Wilson, to cancer in 2007.

Sales director Matthew said: “We all think The Christie does an amazing job and wanted to raise as much money as we could for them by doing the run.

“Seeing how they looked after Anthony made me determined to give something back and help make a difference.”

Matthew, Emily and Mike have been training hard before and after work by running around Tarporley and the Cheshire countryside.

Friends and family will be supporting them along the 6.2 mile course as the trio run through Manchester city centre.

For 21-year-old Emily, who has never run before, the nerves are kicking in.

The Land Rover experience manager said: “I’m a little nervous as I’ve never done anything like this before.

“Matthew and Mike have been great at motivating me plus they’ve promised to give me piggy back if I am struggling to get over the finish line!”
