A huge "THANK YOU" to Fiona from RSViP for choosing CANCERactive to be the recipient of the proceeds from the raffle at The WREN 2017 Quiz on Thursday 9th November at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Nottingham.  The evening was a great success and a good time was enjoyed by the 85 property professionals in attendance.


Lynn Rickett Memorial Tournament 2017


The Lynn Rickett 2017 Memorial Tournament was another brilliant success, and raised £1060!  This brings the total raised by Highbury Ladies annual tennis and cake tournament to £5305 since it began in 2013. A huge thank you from all the CANCERactive team for your continued support. You can still donate and show your support for the Highbury Ladies on the following link.

Eadaoin Devlin - Deep River Rock Belfast City Half Marathon 2017

A huge "THANK YOU" to Eadaoin Devlin who recently ran The Deep River Rock Belfast Half Marathon and raised a fantastic £897.00 for CANCERactive.  Eadaoin said the weather conditions were good on race day and whilst she felt exhausted on crossing the finishing line, you wouldnt think so from the photos that she kindly sent us. Congratulations Eadaoin!

An amazing day for the London Marathon. Perfect weather conditions and both body and mind were sharp and strong. I set a new personal best at 3h 21min and 15 sec, I am pleased as this is over 12 minutes faster than my pervious PB, bar a "wobble" and jelly babies at mile 19-20, it went rather well and I enjoyed it very much.

Thanks for the support from CANCERactive and also for the donations and some very heartfelt lines on my Just Giving page, I thought about all of you and you helped me along every step of the way.

A big thanks also to my patient husband Brad for putting up with the obsessive running and for tirelessly pushing my Just Giving page and thanks also to my parents for their endless inspiration.

Thanks all - could not have done it without you.

Until next time take care.

All my love



On the 19th of April 2015, Den Robbins competed in the Strictly Bicester 2015 Dance Competition having been entered by his loving partner without his knowledge. Den dove straight into training and after admitting the competition was nerve wracking, he made it through to the final with his dance partner despite her heel getting caught in her dress and very much enjoyed the competition. A big thank you to Den who raised £225 for CANCERactive.

Our fundraising tournament went ahead in sunshine this year and we raised a magnificent £700 (including Gift Aid) which has all been paid to CANCERactive through Justgiving.
The tournament winner was Sarah Holmes and the prize for the pinkest person went to Kate Wolstenholme - I attach a picture in case youre interested. It should be obvious which is which!
It was a fantastic afternoon. There was a very joyful, energetic atmosphere but also rather moving. Just what youd expect with 30 women full of endorphins after running around in the sunshine! Alan (Lynns husband) gave a nice speech about Lynn and CANCERactive, and Lynns daughter Tasha presented the prizes. Then we all pigged out on tea and homemake cakes - and sale of uneaten cakes afterwards raised £70 (included in our total).
This will be an annual event (probably in early September next year) so watch this space!
best wishes



Rose completed the Midnight Sun Run half Marathon in Norway and raised over £1000 for CANCERactive. The run started at 10.30pm at night on June 21, the longest day of the year (and light all night long in the North of Norway). Rose sent us the following account of her experience: “I felt privileged to be able to run in such a beautiful part of the world and for such a great charity – cancer affects almost all of us one way or another. It was really surreal running in the middle of the night in full daylight, alongside the beautiful Tromso fjord with the snow capped mountains surrounding all the runners. I had the Cansurving team spirit with me all the way”.



On Sunday 27th April, a coastal walk was held from Frinton to Walton (and back) in memory of Nicole Abbott from Great Bromley, who lost her battle for cancer a year ago, aged only 34. Funds were raised for the charity CANCERactive and, to date, £1,400 has been collected, which, when Gift Aid is taken into account, amounts to over £1,600 for the Charity.
