Organisers of an exciting fundraising event in Perth are urging local people to get involved.

Cancer Research UK’s Relay For Life is a unique celebration of life and hope which unites communities to help beat cancer and culminates in a fantastic family and team event. This is the first time Relay for Life has taken place in Perth.

Now the senior event team of volunteers staging Relay For Life is looking for two more volunteers to join the team. As well as recruiting teams, they are searching for motivated people who want to help organise the event itself and get the whole community involved.

Scott Jewell, volunteer Event Leader of Cancer Research UK’s Relay For Life in Perthshire said: “We would love to hear from anyone who wants to find out more about Relay For Life and how they can help.

“We are searching for motivated people who want to help organise the event itself and get the whole community involved. We currently seeking a creative individual to promote and co-ordinate Cancer Awareness activities on the lead up and at the event. The role will help inform the public about how to reduce their risk of Cancer through healthy lifestyle choices. We are also seeking a committed and compassionate individual to co-ordinate the Candle of Hope Ceremony. This takes place at dusk and is dedicated to those who have experienced or is going through cancer or in remembrance of someone who has died from cancer.

Cancer Research UK is dedicated to saving more lives by preventing, controlling and curing all cancers. The charity funds the work of thousands of scientists, doctors and nurses who are fighting over 200 types of cancer.

Thanks to Cancer Research UK’s work, more people are surviving cancer than ever before. Survival rates have doubled over the last 40 years and the charity’s work has been at the heart of that progress.

But despite improvements in treatment, cancer causes more than one in four of all deaths in the UK. Cancer Research UK wants to change that and needs the help of people in Perthshire to help save many more lives.
