2020 Committee

Relay for Life is a volunteer led fundraising campaign for Cancer Research UK.  


It is organised and run by a group of people passionate about raising money and awareness for Cancer Research and it’s work in Beating Cancer Sooner, through research.  


As with all major events, it takes a lot of organising to pull off the event, and Relay is no exception.


The role of the committee is split into lots of smaller jobs, which makes things easier, with each job having it’s own subcommittee so as a group they come together and Relay for Life is delivered.
