This weekend, one of the first Relay for Life events to be held in Northumberland took place at KEVI School in Morpeth, organised as part of the international fundraising effort, raising money for various cancer charities.
Supporting this event and in attendance for the start of the relay was Northumberland Member of Parliament, Ian Lavery, who said he was “incredibly proud” to see local fundraisers, including one of his appointed charity champions; ‘Team Susie’ taking part in this fantastic event.
Speaking after the event, Mr Lavery said; “Seeing the community come together, with well-known and committed fundraisers such as the ladies from Team Susie and their families has been excellent. This event shows just what can be achieved when our local community joins together and raises money to help a wide variety of charities, all doing sterling work supporting those who are fighting cancer and their families.”
