Cancer Research UK - Pontypool Relay for life 2018

On Saturday 26th May 2018 Pontypool Park was home to the Pontypool Relay for life 2018 where the aim of this event is for volunteer’s to raise funds by completing a 24 hour relay in teams by walking laps around Pontypool Rugby pitch to help raise funds for Cancer Research UK. Mr Willis was asked to DJ at the event for the 24 hours and aswell as Mr Willis there were various pupils involved in the event who worked in teams to complete the 24 relay, two pupils who were part of the Cadets where they ensured the park was kept clean for the 24 hours and another two pupils who sang at the Candle of Hope Ceremony (A section of the event where time was given to people to remember the loved ones they have lost). The event was a huge success where there were various activities like walking a lap backwards, tug of war, a dog show and also a silent disco which went  on into the early hours and to date the pupils have raised funds to help towards the current total that has been raised which is now over £30,000.00. We look forward to seeing if more pupils get involved in the event next year and below is a list for the pupils that were involved. This is a huge achievement for all involved, well done!
