As chosen promotional partner for this event, we at PomPrint are proud to be able to advertise both the Open Night and the Name the Mascot Competition on behalf of Peterhead’s Relay for Life.
As the snow starts to fall, once again, on Richard Allen House and its environs, I am reminded that it is the time of year for all things Rock Challenge and Moonlight Prowl.
We have already been beavering away at various Rock Challenge designs, and we have just produced our first sample for this year’s Moonlight Prowl T-Shirts.
Make certain that you keep up to date with these events by registering with this blog. We will be giving you updates on the various school Rock Challenge entries, and details on how you can join in with this year’s moonlight prowl, raising money for breast cancer research. Also, if your school is involved in the Rock Challenge, why not drop me a line on here and let me know about it?
Cancer Research UK PETERHEAD Relay for Life 2013
Peterhead Relay for Life is a charity event organised by volunteers which raises money for Cancer Research UK. Relay for Life is an inspirational 24 hours that brings together Peterhead and the surrounding communities to remember loved ones, honour cancer survivors and most importantly celebrate life! Peterhead is the most successful annual Relay for Life event in the UK and thanks to the support of the local community has raised a staggering £650,000 for Cancer Research UK’s life saving work over the past 7 years.
How Relay Works…
From 11am on Saturday 6th July 2013 until 11am on Sunday 7th, teams will walk round Lord Catto Park in Peterhead in a relay format. Teams can all walk together, in pairs, individually, or can even run if they are feeling energetic but there must be at least one member of each team on the track at any one time. All around us as we walk is a festival of entertainment and activities to keep everyone amused during a truly remarkable 24 hours!
Hope and Inspiration
The Survivors Lap is truly inspirational and testament to the amazing work being done by Cancer Research UK using the money raised by Relay for Life. The Candle of Hope ceremony is an incredibly touching reminder of why we need Relay for Life.

It is truly amazing what can happen when lots of people pull together for a good cause!
It is always nice to get feedback from the various charities that we support throughout the year, and particularly good when we get something in writing. As you recall, earlier this year we gave our support to the Mintlaw Mo’s who are raising money for prostate cancer research by doing various things, inclusive of a 97 mile walk! Continue reading
A short time ago I put out an appeal for you to support the female staff at Cockermouth school in an effort to raise money for Cancer Research on behalf of one of their colleagues who had recently been diagnosed with the illness. Unfortunately, the team are still well away from their target, so I was hoping that a photo of the ladies wearing their campaign t-shirts might make a few of you jump into action and sponsor them. The sponsorship link is here.
..and some of the ladies are here…..
Please help the Cockermouth School ‘Race for Life’ Team. – goo.gl/ijmLv with either a small donation or a RT.
