Arrowtown School pupils join forces with their peers at
Remarkables Primary School on Friday to raise the profile of
the Cancer Society's major fundraising event ''Relay for
Life'' in Cromwell to be held at the weekend.
Remarkables will host the fundraising event ''Relay for a
Day'', which will involve each pupil walking at some stage
throughout the school day.
Parents and members of the public are invited to come and
walk with them''We are encouraging a gold coin donation from
everyone who takes part in the relay, but hoping that the
community and local businesses will get behind the cause, the
efforts of the students and pop in and drop donations in the
Cancer Society buckets,'' organiser Rachael Middleton said.
''We are trying to advertise the event so that people turn up
and we can raise as much money as possible for the Cancer
Society,'' she said.
