A NEWLYWED Balloch bride got her wedding dress covered in mud - to raise funds for Cancer Research.

Sabine Gould, 31, took part in Pretty Muddy in her dazzling white gown - complete with her three bridesmaids.

Sabine, who tied the knot with Sean in October last year was taking part in the event in memory of her grandad, Gordon Irwin.

Brave souls of all abilities took on the 5km, mud splattered obstacle course on Sunday, September 8, which raised more than £200,000 for Cancer Research UK.

Cancer survivor, Evan Wilson, seven, sounded the horn which started the race.

He fought back against the disease, after being diagnosed with liver cancer at just 12 days old.

Lisa Adams, Cancer Research UK’s spokeswoman in Scotland, said: “I want to say a huge thank you to Evan and to everyone who took part in Pretty Muddy Glasgow.

“Listening to Evan’s story brought home to everyone why raising money for cancer research is so important. The atmosphere on the obstacle course was full of fun and camaraderie with an extra helping of mud, sweat and cheers. It was also emotional with participants wearing signs on their backs declaring their reasons for taking part. Many will be remembering loved ones lost to cancer or celebrating the lives of people dear to them who have survived.”
