Our fundraising depends on all our registered teams. Each team is made up of a group of friends, family, work colleagues etc. A team captain registers a new team name and then other adults or children can join that team. Teams have any number of members generally 8-14 but we have had a team of 2 people and one of over 30 people.
Teams organise their own events during the year or volunteer to do Collections arranged by the committee.
Currently Relay 2023 has 14 teams. You can join one of them or, if you prefer, you can start your own team.
You can use the links below the team details to donate to a team or to join any of the registered teams. The team captain may need to let you have the password for the team so that you can join.

I am Bernie, welcome to our team. Cancer has been part of my life for many years, I am 3rd generation of breast cancer. Thanks to ground breaking research I am happy to say “I am surviving” my breast cancer diagnosis.
My team are an amazing group of friends that have had cancer effect them too, both personally and through family. This is not the only cancer to effect our team. So many have been my rocks and I can honestly say they have all been an amazing support when times have not felt so rosy.
We are dedicated to raising awareness and money to fund further research, to make make more success stories. I feel very honoured and humbled to know so many amazing people. Thank you x
Cartoons Against Cancer
Team captain: Morag Coley
We are the wacky, colourful and weird team, who can be seen in crazy costumes, galloping about trying to make people laugh and remember our wonderful event. We’ve been taking part in Relay for at least 9 years and literally wouldn’t miss it for the world.
This is the 1st year as team crafty dodgers, but we have done many relays previously. Raising money for cancer research is close to our hearts having lost many family and friends to this wretched disease. Our team member Amanda is a survivor who beat childhood leukaemia twice. We know 1st hand what it’s like and what goes on in the journey to fight it. We are a team who like to have fun and we all do some form of crafting hence the team name! So here we are ready to relay, raise money to fight back at this disease.

Team captain: Charlotte Willcocks
This is our 8th Relay! This team was formed in memory of my Grandad and many others who have lost their fight. It became far more personal when my dad got diagnosed last year and we had our first survivors on our team. Going through this difficult time gave us a closer perspective on life with Cancer but we are extremely thankful for all of Cancer Research UK’s hard work in fighting this disease.
Team captain: Laura Jewell

cancer the boot.
Mixed Allsorts would like to thank Mark Pepper of No9 Pep’s Emporium for his
support this year.

Wilsons are Fast & Furious
Team Captain: Shaun Wilson
This year Wilson’s Walkers and the Not Fast but Furious decided to amalgamate to make a stronger team, which has proved successful with our fundraising so far. We are on track to raise £3000 this year, which is great as Cancer Research needs this money so greatly. We are a group of lifelong friends who have all been affected by this awful disease but have witnessed first-hand the new and amazing treatments available through research. The team is passionate about raising money for this great cause, whilst having fun and making memories. And of course, remembering our lost members and family. Our favourite relay quote is “Cancer doesn’t sleep and nor do we!”
Team captain: Hope
This is a committee collecting team. Funds still go to Cancer Research UK, but are not attributed to any one team.
We now have two contactless card readers which pay directly into the Cancer Research UK bank account. Money raised using these readers goes to the committee team and is used to pay for essentials on the relay day like the first aid, security and towards equipment for the entertainment.
This is supporting the supporters who support Cancer Research Uk.
