Race for Life

Welcome to the website of the Greenwich & District local committee of Cancer Research UK, raising funds to help fight cancer by organising local events and having fun at the same time

Join us at our next event:

A day out in Plaxtol
Saturday, 9th Sep 2017, from 12noon
Join us for a day out in Plaxtol. We have been offered the use of a private field in Long Mill Lane near Shrubshall Meadow where there will be games such as badminton nets, balls and archery set up. Bring your own sausages, burgers etc to cook over the open fire pit, there's a stream at the end of the field for pond dipping (or chilling the white wine!) and we will provide tea/ coffee plus cake for afternoon tea. There will be a marquee in case of inclement weather or (hopefully) to protect from the sun - and there ARE loos! We will also lead a gentle stroll to visit Old Soar Manor about 2pm. For those who wish to do a slightly longer walk (about 3 miles) there is a very pleasant one that continues from Old Soar Manor and takes in the Kentish Rifleman's pub. Turn up any time after 12 and stay as long as you like.

Our thanks to:

All our Supporters
A huge thank you to everyone who comes and supports us. We can put on events but we'd be pretty lonely if you didn't come along - and we wouldn't raise very much money for this worth-while cause.

If there's anything else you would like us to run, or an event you'd like to run on our behalf, just let us know.
We are the fund raising committee for the whole of the Borough of Greenwich, running all sorts of events - you are sure to find something that appeals to you.

Join our mailing list to get details of all our events, we do not pass your details on to anyone else and send out our newsletter once every month or two.

Or maybe you would like to come along to our committee meetings, help out at one of our events, run your own event, or simply give us some money to help us fund research into cancer.
