A group of five primary school girls ran the 5km Race for Life to raise money for Cancer Research UK. Eve Beardall, Sophie Ames, Marli Saunders, Amelia Ogden and Emily Lane, all six years old and in year one at Stanley St Andrews CofE Primary School, raised £355 and ran the 5km course with their mums in 44 minutes. The girls have all been touched by cancer in their own way and understand the money will go towards research to help find treatments for the disease.
