A PERIOD of free registration for next year’s Pontypool Relay for Life has opened.

The Cancer Research UK event has raised more than £125,000 for the charity and returns on Saturday, May 26, 2018.

Colin Guest, the volunteer event chair, said: “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.

“We would love to hear from anyone who wants to find out more about Relay For Life and how they can help.

“Everyone knows someone who has been touched by cancer.

“Taking part in Relay For Life is a positive way to be part of your local community and help make a real difference.”
