South Bucks members stroll through the night for Cancer Research

9 August 2018

Members of South Bucks Jewish Community (SBJC) raised more than £4,000 for charity by walking through the day and night at this year’s Relay for Life.

Taking place on the one rainy day in our boiling hot summer, the SBJC Strollers team still enjoyed a full 20 strong turnout at RAF Halton near Aylesbury, Bucks.

This was the 10th year the community has taken part in the event – a 24 hour celebration and fundraiser where team members take turn walking around an athletics track.

In total, the SBJC Strollers raised £4369.40 for Cancer Research UK.

Team captain and Liberal Judaism officer Amanda McFeeters said: “The event is the perfect mix of uplifting celebration and poignant reflection, allowing people to remember loved ones lost to cancer while celebrating the survivors and looking to the future with optimism.

“It is a real team event and the SBJC team was fantastic. The support we get from members of SBJC in raising money for Cancer Research UK each year is what helps to keep us walking through the night.”
