Race for Life 11th June 2017 -compressed.jpg

Rotarians from the two Redditch Clubs acted as track marshalls for the recent 'Race for Life' in Arrow Valley Park, Redditch. This 5k and 10k event, for women and girls of all ages, was part of Cancer Research UK's ongoing campaign to raise money to beat cancer.

Over 200 runners (and walkers) took part, each with their own reasons for getting involved - raising money, keeping fit, remembering a love one, or just having fun - a selection of bizarre cotumes were in evidence!

The Rotary Club of Southam 2000 has raised £1185 to buy a Syringe Drive for The Shakespeare Hospice. The Syringe Drive allows the hospice nurses to regulate a constant feed of medicine to a patient over a 24 hour period in their own homes.

A Syringe Drive is often used towards the end of a patients’ life and helps them to feel more comfortable. Hospice at Home Nurse, Chrissie MacDonald says “Although they are very expensive items, they are invaluable to the team and to the patients that use them. This is the third Syringe Drive our hospice has.”

The event combined, 5k, 10k and 15k courses around the park's lake and pathways, and as well as raising funds for this important cause, encouraged Redditch people (and their dogs in some cases) to get active and put a 'spring' in their step.

Over 280 people took part, and as soon we know how much money was raised, we'll provide an update on this site.
