Some of the library staff will be putting on their running shoes and racing for life in July, and in the process, raising money for Cancer Research UK. The team members are Kate Weedon, Jess Gardner, Maggie Martin, Ros Jennings, Carolyn Asher, Maria Koutsoumanis and Rae Ahmed, and they come under the collective name, ‘Bound 2B Brilliant’.
The team members have come together to raise money for Cancer Research UK, and to play a vital part in helping save lives. Events like Race for Life are vital in funding Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work into preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer.
The plucky team members will be racing for life at Westpoint (near Exeter) on July 22, 2012 at 11am. Why not go along and cheer them on. You can also sponsor the team at http://www.raceforlifesponsorme.org/bound-2b-brilliant. In doing so, you can play your part in beating cancer.
Also, look out for fundraising events! There’s bound to be something to tickle your fancy. There will be coffee and cakes at Main Library Information Central, 24 April 2012, 10am -11am, more cakes on sale at Amory on 14 May, 12pm – 2pm, a sponsored swim (to wear off the cakes) and much more!
