Town will be awash with pink as women raise money for Cancer Research UK.

BARNSTAPLE will be awash with pink on Sunday as more than 1,000 women take part in this year’s Race For Life.

The 5km event has more than 1,400 ladies signed up to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

Ruth Chamings, Barnstaple event manager, said: “Race for Life is not competitive and it’s not about being fit or fast. It’s about thousands of women coming together to show cancer who’s boss.”

Women can boost their contribution to Cancer Research UK’s work by doing a ‘wardrobe work-out’ before their event.

The charity is encouraging people to sort out and bag up hidden treasures such as quality clothes, books and accessories they no longer use and take them to the donation station at Race for Life.

Each bag of goods could help raise up to £30 for groundbreaking research.

● Check out the North Devon Gazette website and next week’s paper for all the photos from the big event.
