Other Information

We get reminded of how important it is to continue to work to improve bowel cancer survival in all sorts of ways, but none more poignant than a group of around 70 friends and family members who got together to take part in the Bolt round the Holt 2016.

In 2016, ‘Team Jane’ were running in memory of Jane Nicholas, who sadly passed away in May 2015 after a short battle with bowel cancer.We thought it would be a lovely idea to get a group of Jane's family and friends together to run “The Bolt” in memory of Jane and raise money for GUTS which does so much work raising the awareness of bowel cancer and screening in the local area. Jane was a keen sportswomen, participating in many events across many sports and so this was a really fitting tribute. Jane would have been so proud of everyone who participated and the amazing total raised. “
