VOLUNTEERS have been clowning around in a bid to get people to take on a 24-hour relay for Cancer Research UK.
The Relay for Life team ran a stall at HMS Collingwood’s open day at the weekend to try to recruit more people to take part in their fundraiser.
To celebrate its 15th birthday, the relay will have a party theme this year, with many participants dressed as clowns.
More than 300 people have signed up, including cancer survivors. Teams will take it in turns to do laps of the track at the Mountbatten Centre, Portsmouth.
Sarah Gilmour, from the event committee, said: ‘We were at HMS Collingwood to promote the relay and were pleased to have lots of interest.’
The relay will take place overnight on Saturday, July 16. To register visit cancerresearchuk.org/relay.
