Equiom will sponsor ‘Relay for Life Jersey’ for the fourth year running in 2018. The annual event which raises funds for Cancer Research UK will take place on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 July at the FB Fields, St Clement. Since joining forces with the charity in 2014, Equiom and Relay have raised over £170,000 and this year, they’ve set a record-breaking fundraising target of £65,000. The relay event invites teams of eight to 15 people to raise funds through sponsorship for Cancer Research UK by walking in relay continuously for 24 hours. Channel Island residents will benefit directly from Relay for Life Jersey, as fundraising efforts go straight to Cancer Research UK’s Research Centre based at Southampton Hospital. As always, the Relay weekend will open with a Survivors’ Lap of Honour involving local people who have beaten cancer. The Relay committee has set a target of 25 teams of approximately 10 people, with a goal to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.
