I AM delighted to tell you that the an additional £7435.81 was reclaimed through Gift Aid by Cancer Research UK this year for the Pink Ribbon Run.

This brings the total raised from this year's event to an amazing £41,520.81.

The support given to the Pink Ribbon Run by the people of Royston and the surrounding villages has been outstanding, and I can only say thank you on behalf of the committee to everyone who took part or acted as a sponsor.

Plans are well under way for next year's event on June 22 2008.

While we never have a target of what we would like to raise I would ask everyone to put the date in their diary and hope they will join us on Therfield Heath for a day of "pink".
