D&A accountancy student Louise Lawson entered team Mad Dog’s Minions in the Arbroath Relay For Life last year in honour of her dad Billy McLeod who was undergoing treatment for cancer at the time.
Now she is urging local people to follow her lead and enter a team for what she describes as a huge family event. Louise explained: “Relay For Life is a great way to spend time with your friends, family and colleagues while raising money for a seriously worth-while cause. Everyone knows someone who has been touched by cancer. Taking part in Relay For Life is a positive way to be part of the local community and help make a real difference.
“When my dad passed away I was amazed at the number of people from the relay who sent me messages of support. It was a great comfort to know that so many people cared. Once you join Relay for Life you become part of what I can only describe as a huge adopted family.”
Relay Chair, Ian Angus added: “We would love to hear from anyone who wants to find out about Relay For Life and how to get involved.”
