Michelle Willett and Sue Harrison both lost their mum’s to bowl cancer and both had looked at entering the ‘race for life’ for a few years. Over the last year they decided to put in some training and have lost some weight so they decided that this was the year to enter. They hope that with the money that they have raised it will help with the research to find a cure for this horrid disease.
Well done to both of them.
