Relay For Life Crewkerne has had an amazing first year in 2017, bringing together the whole community in and around Crewkerne, in a combined effort of strength in the fight against cancer. Committee members and a chairperson are now needed for Relay For Life 2018.
Becky Trout, Local Fundraising Manager for Somerset and West Dorset at Cancer Research UK said: “You joined over 40 Relay For Life events across the UK this Summer and thousands more around the world, to show that together we are stronger than cancer. You did this by getting together teams of family and friends and going the extra mile to fund life-saving cancer research, culminating in the wonderful 24 hour celebration at Wadham School field.
“However, we desperately need you help to bring this amazing community event back to Crewkerne for 2018. Relay For Life is completely run by amazing volunteers with support from Cancer Research UK. We need your passion and skills as part of a committee that will plan, organise and promote a Relay For Life event, uniting Crewkerne in the fight against cancer. We are looking for committed people who will represent Cancer Research UK and encourage fundraising throughout the year.
“In particular, we are looking for an Event Chair, who will act as event spokesperson and lead a committee of volunteers to organise an annual Relay For Life event in your community. Perhaps you are a natural leader, then this will suit you and we would love to hear from you.” Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through pioneering research. Every day 970 people are diagnosed with cancer in the UK. The charity has vowed not to stop until the time comes, when everyone is told that they are going to be okay.
Joining the Relay For Life team, will help Cancer Research UK bring that day, a step closer. Anyone who would like to find out more and volunteer their time and experience to help organise a Crewkerne Relay For Life 2018, is asked to please contact Becky Trout and have a chat about getting involved on 07766102379 or email email@example.com
