Half marathon effort for cancer cause
THREE sisters and former Rydal Penrhos pupils successfully completed a gruelling half marathon and raised thousands for a cancer charity.
Hannah, Catherine and Elinor Davies travelled to South Wales to test their endurance at the Cardiff Half Marathon, running in aid of Cancer Research UK.
The trio, who were joined on ‘Team Davies’ by father Gareth, were running in memory of grandfather Raymond Lewis, who died of lung cancer earlier this year.
This was the second time that the sisters have competed in a half marathon, and they managed to raise a considerable amount for Motor Neurone Disease in 2016 from a similar event in London.
The Rydal Penrhos community lent their support to the cause after boosting the fund during a special cake sale which Elinor attended, and their JustGiving page has reached an incredible total of £3,140.01 after setting an initial target of £1,200.
Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “To raise so much for such a worthy cause is a truly incredible achievement, and everyone at Rydal Penrhos is absolutely thrilled for Team Davies and we congratulate them on their wonderful efforts.
“The cause was obviously very close to their hearts given the sad recent passing of their grandfather, and we were proud to help the fundraising total in a small way.”
