Relay teams quick off mark for charity

RELAY for Life organisers in Northam are quick off the mark when it comes to planning.

Team liaison Ashlea Owczarski-Moss said nine teams had registered so far, with a total of $1025 raised towards the goal of $95,000.

There are 137 days left until the next Avon Valley relay event at Northam Recreation Centre on March 19 to 20 next year.

“The committee would love to set a record of 20 teams to be involved,” Ms Owczarski-Moss said.

The relay celebrates the lives of cancer survivors and carers, and sends a message of hope to people recently diagnosed.

Helpers are required for the children’s zone and other activities, plus local dance groups, bands and school choirs to provide the entertainment.

To register as a survivor, carer, volunteer or entertainer, call Ashlea on 0419 157 558.
