A team of staff from independent food ingredients manufacturer Macphie took part in the Pretty Muddy race to raise money for Cancer Research.

The event took place at Camperdown Park, Dundee, with 4,000 women taking on a 5km muddy obstacle course to raise money for charity.

Zoe Smart, research and development technologist at Macphie, said: “The event was great fun and a fantastic way to get to know colleagues from different departments. We’re already planning other events to take part in later in the year.”

Each year, Macphie donates a percentage of annual profits to local and national charities. Employees are also encouraged to take part in a range of fundraising events. This year, Macphie has so far donated over £3,000 to charities including Crohn’s and Colitis UK and Marie Curie.

In May, Macphie announced a new Belgian chocolate filling would be added to its existing luxury range.
