Have your say

A TEAM of five co-workers power-walked their way to raising £870 for a good cause.

Elaine Wiles, Lynn Riches, Donna Bailey, Karen Spurdens and Pauline Tripp, who all work together at Boyes in Holbeach, decided to take part in the Race for Life 2011 as their latest effort to support Cancer Research UK.

Unfortunately, a stock take at work meant the five “Boyes Babes” were not all able to race together, so two took part in the Cambridge event, while the other three completed the 5km race in King’s Lynn.

Mrs Riches said: “We throughly enjoyed it and all of us finished in less than an hour. Two of us had done it before, but for the rest of us it was the first time we had done anything like it. But now we have definitely got the bug and will be doing it again.”
