SBJC Strollers raise thousands for Cancer Research UK

South Bucks Strollers

4 August 2019

Almost £5,000 has been raised for Cancer Research UK by members of South Bucks Jewish Community (SBJC), who took part in Relay for Life at RAF Halton in Buckinghamshire.

In the run up to the event the SBJC Strollers, led by their captain and Liberal Judaism officer Amanda McFeeters, organised numerous fundraising activities including a sponsored cycle and supermarket bag packing, raising £3,000. On the day, a tombola and ‘guess the amount of money in the jar’ competition garnered a further £1,500.

The SBJC Strollers take part in the Relay for Life – a 24 hour continuous walk to raise money and awareness for Cancer Research UK – each year.

The team said: “At least one of us has to be walking at all times, a particular challenge when the weather isn’t as summery as it should be. Despite a few light showers this year, spirits remained high and everyone who took part had a thoroughly good time raising money for such a vital cause.”
