TLC (Turner's Local Charities) has raised their largest amount so far for charity by taking part in a range of activities including a 5k mud-splattered obstacle course raising over £5000 for Cancer Research UK.

John Turner Construction's in-house employee led charity group, TLC held an Easter raffle and in June a team of seven took part in the Pretty Muddy event at Moor Park which included space hoppers, scramble nets and inflatable slides.

The money raised, which totalled £5006, will fund research to beat cancer, helping to ensure more men, women and children in the North West and across the UK survive.

Jo Moss Cancer Research UK’s Senior Local Fundraising Manager for the North West said: 'We are incredibly grateful for the support of the John Turner TLC team for organising fundraising events and for getting involved in Pretty Muddy. One in two people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer at some stage in their lives, but the good news is more people are surviving the disease now than ever before. Cancer survival in the UK has doubled since the early 1970s and Cancer Research UK’s work has been at the heart of that progress. However, we have only been able to achieve this thanks to the dedication and commitment of volunteers and supporters like John Turner's TLC group without whom we would not be able to fund our life-saving research.'
