Devon Cliffs raises cash for cancer charity

Devon Cliffs Holiday Park was in the pink after raising hundreds of pounds for cancer sufferers.

The holiday park recently held a pink fun run, raising �750 for Cancer Research UK.

The event was part of Devon Cliffs Big Green Weekend, which included a farmers market showcasing local suppliers of all things Devon.

Visitors and staff were encouraged to wear pink costumes and braved high winds and rain to run, walk or scoot around the perimeter of the holiday park.

Run organiser Brian O’Brian said: “We wanted to raise money for breast cancer research as an added extra really, and because we have staff at Devon Cliffs who have been affected by this particular cancer.

“To add on the walk to our planned green day, seemed a good way to raise vital funds and I would like to thank all who helped on the day and those who braved the elements to walk or run - most of them got blown around the course.”

Cancer Research UK spokeswoman Sylvia Arlett said: “I am really grateful to Brian and his team for their enthusiasm.
