I would like to take this opportunity to thank your many readers who have supported Cancer Research UK's Somerset Stride Committee, by taking part in the Montacute Stride, which is held at Montacute House every year, on the last Sunday in October to raise funds for Breast Cancer Research.Thanks to the many people who took part in the walk, a magnificent sum of £18,000 was raised last year in support of our Breast Cancer Programme.Cancer Research UK would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who took part, and helped raise this wonderful sum, especially Angela Wills, chairman of the Somerset Stride Committee, together with the other committee members, the local Army Cadets, who marshalled the walk, Graham at Montacute House, the lead and back walkers - without your tremendous help and support we could not have continued to run such a successful event. Thank you.Breast cancer is the most common women's cancer in the UK, with one in nine women developing the disease at some point in their lives, and Cancer Research UK's work to beat the disease remains crucial.If you would like to find out more about how you can enter this year's event, please call Angela Wills on 07929 254713 or email www.cancerresearchuk.org/breastcancer. All the money raised will go towards breast cancer research carried out by our doctors and scientists at laboratories and hospital units around the country.Thank youDawn HarrisonArea Volunteer Manager
