A determined lady from a local opticians is preparing to get grimy – all in the name of charity. Samia Qureshi, one of the store directors at Specsavers in Motherwell, is taking on this year’s Race for Life Pretty Muddy at Bellahouston Park on 20th June.

Samia will be joining Specsavers Wishaw employees Karen McGuire, Leeanne Montgomery, Margaret Paterson and Lynsey Welsh who have called themselves ‘What A Spectacle’ – on the 5k obstacle course for Cancer Research UK.

Samia said: ‘I wanted to take on Pretty Muddy as it’s something a bit different. I’m very proud to be taking part alongside the girls from Specsavers in Wishaw and think it’s great that two local stores are involved. I’m looking forward to conquering the obstacles and doing my bit in the fight against cancer.’
