An army of women in pink did battle with a 5k course in the grounds of Waddesdon Manor to raise more than £120,000 for Cancer Research UK.

More than 1,600 women gathered together in the sunshine yesterday at the annual Race for Life to fight back against cancer with a sponsored walk, jog or run.

However, the challenge combined with the heat was seen to be taking its toll on some ladies – with one seen to be physically sick from the exertion.

Ladies boosted their fundraising power by doing a ‘wardrobe workout’ to weed out any unwanted clothes, accessories or books before dropping them off at the Donation Station on the day.

Each bag of goods could help raise up to £30 for ground-breaking research.

Aylesbury event manager Simon Burley said: “Race for Life is not competitive and it’s not about being fit or fast. It’s about thousands of women coming together to show cancer who’s boss.”
