A team of runners donned their pink t-shirts and trainers to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

The nine team members work for Bellway Homes Thames Gateway, a house building company based in Orpington responsible for developments in London, Essex, Kent and the Thames Gateway area. They took part in the 5k Race for Life event on Blackheath Common on July 6 and have raised a combined total of more than £1,200 in sponsorship from their friends and family and still have more to collect in the coming weeks.

Ian Gorst, Managing Director of Bellway Homes Thames Gateway, said: “We are so proud of our Thames Gateway Race for Life team and it’s fantastic that the girls have raised over £1,200 for Cancer Research. I’d also like to thank everyone who sponsored the team and contributed to fund the crucial research needed to help beat cancer.”
