WREXHAM people interested in using their spare time to get active are invited to take up a unique challenge.

Cancer Research UK is looking for volunteers in the area to organise one of its unique series of Relay For Life events, part of the biggest fundraising event in the world.

Relay For Life brings together the community in a 24-hour festival of hope and remembrance to celebrate the strides being made to beat cancer and to raise funds to conquer the disease.

Teams of people from the community take turns to walk, run, skip or crawl around a track in a relay following an opening ‘Lap of Honour’ by cancer survivors. At midnight the atmosphere quietens as the Candle of Hope Ceremony – the most poignant part of Relay For Life – begins.

Whether you have a personal reason for wanting to help organise an event of such calibre or are simply looking for a new challenge, Cancer Research UK wants to hear from you.

The charity wants people from all walks of life to sign up and comprehensive training and support will be given.
