A TEAM of nine women from Spalding got together to take on the Race for Life and raised £3,500.

Organised by Elaine Allen, the team, who all wore pink vests and tutus, were spurred on throughout the 5km route around Burghley Park by the promise of a champagne picnic at the finish line.

All runners managed personal best times ranging from 25 minutes to 38 minutes.

Elaine said: “We would like to thank our friends and family who gave so generously and Unique Computer Training for sponsoring the team vests. We had a fantastic day.”

l Staff from Spalding High School also took part in the race.

Anna Handley said: “We all had a brilliant time and thoroughly enjoyed the day.”
