Fylde coast women are being urged to take one more step for the Cancer Research Race for Life and make sure they hand in their sponsorship money.

The charity is still waiting for some people to send in the cash they raised when they took part in the 5k event on the Promenade in July.

Many do not realise their entry fee only covers the cost of the event and in 2012, a third of women who took part didn’t return their sponsorship money.

Liz Booth, event organiser for Race for Life Blackpool, said: “Already, the generosity of local people has raised more than £100,000 from the Blackpool event, which is incredible.

“If every participant returns their sponsorship we can increase this total even further.”

Money can be returned online at, by phone or by cheque.
