A team from the Specsavers stores in Pontefract and Castleford has recently taken part in the Race for Life, raising almost £1000 for Cancer Research UK.

The Specsavers contingent joined thousands of women to turn Pontefract Park pink for the town’s annual Race for Life event.

Runners, united in their bid to beat cancer, walked or ran through the park, supported by friends and family who watched on from the sidelines.

Events like Race for Life are vital in funding Cancer Research UK's life-saving work into preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer.
