Race For Life

I am so proud of Emily, today she completed the 5km Race For Life for Cancer Research UK. It was held at the Ardingly Show Grounds and there were over 2000 women taking part. Emily walked the 5kms with her friends Emily and Fleur and Emily's Mum, Kayley. Congratulations to all of you for completing it in 59 minutes, I think you did incredibly well.

Having been there taking photos I think next year I'll have to take part as well. There was a fantastic atmosphere and such a sense of achievement as everyone finished. It was also very moving to read the names of friends and loved ones affected by cancer on the backs of those taking part. What a worthwhile cause to walk for.

The girls are excited and looking forward to doing the walk
