Relay raises $45,000 for Cancer Council

Last Saturday’s Relay for Life at Byron Bay’s Red Devil Park is expected to raise about $45,000 for the NSW Cancer Council.

Hundreds of cancer survivors and their carers took part in the event which saw teams walking around the oval from Saturday afternoon to early on Sunday morning.

The day was launched with the cutting of a ribbon by cancer survivors John Fysh, Marg Smith, Barb Pinter and Cheryl Edwards.

Many of those taking part pitched tents at the ground and camped overnight and there was plenty of music to keep them entertained.

One of the organisers, Liz Parks, said it was an ‘excellent’ event and she thanked entertainers for donating their time.

“I thought it went off really well,” she said.
