Race for Life's Barnstaple event manager Ruth Chamings said: "Life-saving research is being funded right now thanks to the women of Barnstaple running, jogging or walking at Race for Life.

"Our participants play a crucial role in helping to turn discoveries made in the lab into better treatments for patients in the South West and across the UK.

"We hope that passing shoppers will be inspired to join the fight, take advantage of our Easter offer and sign up to take part in Race for Life."

The team will also be on hand to answer questions about fundraising and the impressive strides Cancer Research UK scientists are making to treat, diagnose and prevent cancer.

Ruth added: "By taking part in Race for Life, women in Barnstaple can help raise funds for crucial research.

One in two people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer at some stage in their lives, but more people are surviving the disease now than ever before.
