Women get ready for Race for Life
AMONG runners lining up for tonight’s Race for Life events will be two Norwich and Peterborough Building Society staff members.
Lucy Hunns, press officer at N&P’s Lynch Wood office and Dawn Green, customer adviser at N&P, in Skaters Way, Werrington, signed up again this year and will join 2,600 women in the 5km race over at Ferry Meadows country Park, off Oundle Road, Orton Waterville.
Races will take place from 7.30pm tonight and tomorrow.
Race for Life is the UK’s largest “women only” fundraising event, where females of all ages walk, jog or run 5km to raise cash for charity Cancer Research UK. Runners often race in honour of a loved one.
Lucy, who will be running with her mother, said: “I’m really pleased to be part of Race for Life again this year, it’s such a fantastic event.
“I’ve been lucky enough in the past to not be running for anyone in particular, but this year I’ll be running for my auntie who is currently undergoing treatment. I’ve also enlisted the help of my mum, so that makes it extra special.”
