Oh the great British weather! It's pretty well guaranteed to make a key contribution to Smiths News's fundraising activities. This was no exception for the combined forces of "Team Swindon 13" and "Team Miss Chris" in their Race for Life in Salisbury last Sunday. Rowan House's Nora Roth reports...

I’m pleased to say that everyone in our team completed the 5k course on Sunday despite a very uncomfortable 35 degrees!  Quite a few unfortunate participants succumbed to the heat along the way but we did well to finish in not too shabby a time of around 50 minutes.  A stark contrast to the freezing conditions of last year!  After the race we enjoyed a well-earned rest, some cool drinks and a picnic in the shade!

So far we have raised a fantastic amount for Cancer Research UK – the Swindon team alone raising £427 so thank you again to everyone who has sponsored us.  It’s not too late, however, to make a donation to help us reach our £500 target – just click on the link to donate or just to see some more photos of the day!

Many thanks
