From Helen Lewis:
The Haddenham Hopefuls completed our 24 hours and had the honour of receiving the highly prized Spirit of Relay shield once again this year.
This award isn't about the amount of money a team raises it's more about team work, support of others and understanding the whole ethos of the Relay. I know I have a wonderful team of people around me but it's fantastic for this be recognised by the committee.
I wish to thank everyone once again for their support and generosity, from the local businesses who give us raffle prizes to our family, friends and neighbours who attend our fundraising events.
This year we have the great honour of announcing that our fundraising total for Cancer Research UK has reached an absolutely amazing amount of £13,336.15.
On behalf of the charity and my team, Thank you xxxx

It would be wonderful to re-use them on an annual basis.One suggestion is that we create a 'pop-up' display, which can be used each November.If you would like to be involved or if you have any ideas...
