When you lose a dear friend the urge to remember them is strong. When Jean Davies our former club President died in November 2015 we all felt that we wanted to mark her courage in some way.
Many of us, including the President of the National Association of Speaker Clubs Neil Harvey, took part in the Race for Life. Suitably attired in pink we joined 1500 other brave souls at the starting line. The course was perfect – several muddy places where you had to stop to pick your way gingerly through, gave ample opportunity to get your breath back! It was a wonderful day out and cemented even more the bond between our members. We raised over £5500 for Cancer Research UK and had a great time. So now – who is up for a marathon?!
