Ellis Jones celebrate a decade of participating in Bournemouth’s Race for Life

The Ellis Jones’ team of 11 ladies went on the run last weekend at Bournemouth’s Race for Life taking part in both the 5k and 10k events.

This year has marked a decade of Ellis Jones entering a team in the Race for Life and so far we have raised nearly £500 for Cancer ResearchUK, totalling to over £5,000 since 2005.

As well as lacing-up for the race last Sunday (June 15th), staff were busy baking-up delicious cakes to boost their fundraising efforts, a bake sale was held at the Bournemouth office.

Helen Johnstone, Cancer Research UK’s spokeswoman for Dorset, said: “the ladies from Ellis Jones are a great example of the many ways women can take part in Race for Life.”

“Whether taking part alone, with friends and family, or as a business with their own team, together they can help find cures for the 200 different cancers faster.”

“I hope the Ellis Jones’ team will inspire other businesses to play their part and kick cancer into touch.”

The team can still be sponsored via our JustGiving website.
