Dalgety Bay Relay for Life raises £71,000
This year's Dalgety Bay 24-hour Relay for Life raised £71,000 to take the amount given to charity over the past six years to more than £400,000.
The 2012 event, which aims to increase awareness of cancer in the community, saw 23 teams take turns to walk, crawl or run around a track for the full night and day.
More than 200 participants braved difficult weather as the track was moved from the grass to the sport centre astroturf pitch where a camping zone was created for all the teams.
And as the night drew in the Candle of Hope ceremony, supported by Dunfermline Choral Choir, with piper Wilma Graham playing Amazing Grace and Highland Cathedral, emphasised the true meaning of the day.
Chairman David Quinn said, "I am delighted that Relay for Life has moved from strength to strength over the past six years. The event is now firmly established in the community with over 20 teams regularly participating every year and knowing that we have contributed over £400k to Cancer Research UK means that it has been a great success too.
"Next year we will be back again when the theme for the 2013 relay is The Movies, looking to push the amount even higher and we will be looking for new teams and volunteers."
