James Frith MP took part in the Great Manchester Run last weekend, beating his personal best and raising more than £800 so far for Bury Cancer Support Centre, who’ve raised a record amount from this year’s event. James completed the 10k in 52 minutes and 16 seconds. The centre has raised over £9,000 in donations from the run so far.
1 in 2 people under the age of 60 will be diagnosed with some form of cancer. Bury Cancer Support Centre provides practical, emotional and social support to cancer victims and their families.
“Cancer has touched the lives of so many of us. Having the right services in place to offer support and advice to those affected by this ruthless disease is essential. In its 15 years in operation, Bury Cancer Support Centre have helped countless people across Bury through the most difficult times of their lives.
“I was delighted to do the run for the centre and raise over £800 so far, contributing to the centre raising more money this year than at any other run. I’d like to raise as much money as possible to support the centre and you can still donate now.”
Jeff Green, Chair of Trustees at Bury Cancer Support Centre, said:
“This is the first time we’ve had a full team of 25 runners and they’ve all done a great job of raising money – over £9,000 so far, with more coming in. We’d like to thank everyone who ran for us and everyone who donated money to support the centre. You can still donate so please give whatever you can afford and help us to continue supporting those affected by cancer in Bury.”
