In the pink!
ALMOST �20,000 was raised by this year’s pink ribbon run in July.
A grand total of �17,872 was the confirmed amount, which will go towards Marie Curie Cancer Care.
Royston Mayor Cllr Martin Beaver, who took part in the event, said: “It’s such a good event, and I’m delighted that this amount was raised for such a worthy cause.”
A presentation was made at Hush Beauty Salon in Kneesworth Street, Royston, last week. Hush sponsored the prize for the biggest fund raiser, which was a pamper day for two.
School children from Meridian, Greneway and Icknield Walk all took place, with nine-year-old Alexa Thompson, a Greneway pupil, raising �600. Alexa was the winner of a pool party at Royston leisure Centre.
