Staff from Specsavers Lichfield are making a stand against cancer by taking part in the Race for Life on Sunday 23 June in Sutton Coldfield.
Five members of the team will take part in the charity race held at Sutton Park. Abbie Haire, Bernie Turvey, Jayne Wilson, Lisa Rowe and Fran Davies aim to raise at least £200 for Cancer Research UK by collecting sponsorship donations in-store.
A word from the store director
‘I’m really proud of the team getting together to do something for charity,’ said Praful Patel, store director. ‘Race for Life is a great opportunity to have some fun while raising money for Cancer Research UK.
'The team have set themselves a target to raise £200, and with the help from the local community, I’m sure they’ll smash this. For anyone that would like to donate, please pop into the store where we have collection boxes.’
The Race for Life is Cancer Research UK’s biggest series of fundraising events. Taking place across the UK, the events include 5k and 10k routes for participants to walk, jog or run.
