A thousand women are getting ready to raise money for cancer sufferers by taking part in this weekend’s Race for Life in Burnley.

The annual 5km women-only event will be held in Towneley Park on Sunday in aid of Cancer Research UK.

Women and girls can choose to run, walk or jog the route from 11am and entry closes on Friday.

Participants can also boost their contribution to Cancer Research UK’s work by doing a “wardrobe work-out” before their event.

The charity is encouraging them to sort out and bag up hidden treasures such as quality clothes, books and accessories they no longer use and take them to the donation station at Race for Life. Each bag of goods could help raise up to £30 towards research.
