There is less than a month to go until Royston turns blue to raise cash for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

There’s a month to go until Royston turns blue to raise cash for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The five kilometre walk takes place on Sunday, June 22, with all profits going to the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Organiser Lisa Thompson said: “Royston in Blue is now entering its third year, and has raised over £44,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust.

“All monies raised again will go to the trust’s work in the East Anglia region. Seven teenagers a day are diagnosed with some form of cancer, and the trust funds and builds specialist units in NHS hospitals and provide dedicated staff bringing young people together so they can be treated by teenage cancer experts in the best place for them.
