A MAJOR 24-hour fundraising event for Cancer Research UK is planned for Leek next summer.
Around 1,000 people are expected to support 'Relay for Life' at Birchall playing fields over the weekend July 3 - 4.
The event was originally planned to take place this year before Covid-19 intervened.
A spokesperson said: "Relay For Life is a family festival celebrating the power of community fundraising in the fight to beat cancer.
"Teams fundraise for life-saving cancer research then unite at a weekend-long festival to celebrate and remember everyone who has been affected by cancer.
"The festival is focused around a 24-hour relay where team members take it in turns to walk around a track to show that together we will beat cancer".
