WOMEN in Leigh are being urged to grab their last chance to enter Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life.

There are just two weeks left to sign up and join the 1,256 women already registered to take on cancer on June 8 and there are just 44 places left.

Entry closes on June 5 and to sign up to the 5k women-only event visit the website raceforlife.org.

Jennifer Ward, event manager for the north west, said: “We are very grateful to the women who have already entered Race for Life at Leigh.

But we still have places left.”

Women can boost their contribution to Cancer Research UK’s work by doing a ‘wardrobe work-out’.

The charity is encouraging them to sort out and bag up quality clothes, books and accessories they no longer use and take them to the Donation Station at Race for Life.
