Firstly, here's a some pictures and a thank you from Wakefield House's Nora Roth (pictured on the left in the first picture), who ran in Salisbury on July 1st.

Well I managed to complete the 5k Race for Life in Salisbury yesterday with “Team Swindon” and the rest of the “Miss Chris” Team – Miss Chris being the name my late sister-in-law Julie was known as by the pupils she taught. The weather could have been better but at least it didn’t rain on us but it was freezing cold until we started “running”! Well actually we jogged/walked the course but nevertheless in not too shabby a time of around 42 mins!

So thank you once again for your support and generosity, together we have raised £365 for Cancer Research UK with more still coming in!

There are more pictures are on my just giving page if you’re interested.

Nora also ran in support of her niece Lindsay who lives in the Salisbury area. The “Team Swindon” members were Nora, her other sister-in-law plus her niece, Adrienne & Danielle.

Our second successful completion of this year's Race for Life for this post was Plymouth House's Patricia Taylor who ran in Plymouth's event held on 24th June, right at the start of Community Week.

She joined 3,000 other women on Plymouth Hoe who ran, walked, roller-skated or who were pushed around the 5km course in wheelchairs.

Patricia's efforts resulted in a total of £139 raised - fantastic!
