Community Windpower become main sponsor of Relay for life Dunbar with 4,500 donation

Relay For Life

Supported by Cancer Research UK, Relay for life Dunbar is a fun, free and inclusive community festival celebrating the power of fundraising in the fight to beat cancer. The main event is centred around a 24-hour relay, in which team members take turns to walk around a track day and night. The purpose of which is to symbolize that whilst cancer never sleeps, by acting together, we can make a stand against it. The event also features live music, stalls, games, and other activities, as well as a candle of hope ceremony for the public to honour anyone who has been impacted by cancer.

Last year, at Dunbar’s first ever Relay for Life, CWL proudly donated £1,000 to cover the cost of the Candle of Hope ceremony which honoured lives touched by cancer. Overall, the event proved to be a great success, with over 250 individuals (16 teams) coming together to raise £65,000 for lifesaving cancer research.

As Dunbar prepares for this year’s Relay for Life, CWL is proud to announce that it is set to become the main sponsor of the festival. As part of this sponsorship, Community Windpower, through BeGreen Dunbar, will be donating £4,500 to fund key costs associated with the event including equipment hire, licenses, first aid cover, medals and the Candle of Hope ceremony.

Anouska Woods, Community Coordinator at BeGreen Dunbar, has said: “We are incredibly proud to be a main sponsor of this year’s Relay for Life Dunbar. What an inspiring event, helping to fund such important work in the fight against cancer. We wish that everyone involved has an amazing day.”
