Artist's Description

This was taken at The Cancer ‘Relay for Life’ Charity Event I attended on Saturday 12th September, 2007 at Fulbourn in Cambridgeshire.

As the evening got on, candles inside paper bags filled with sand were lit in an Honourary Path in twos around this lake and back to the main Marquis where activities were held to raise funds for Cancer Research.

Survivors of Cancer began the first relay lap around the lake at 9pm. This was preceded by a very moving ceremony where all the candles – and each one represented a person who died of cancer – held a message and was read out loud.

The relay went on all night in order to have somebody walking for a 24 hour period to keep the chain unbroken. An amazing amount of dedication and hard work went into the organisation and most stalls and activities were run by survivors, or family members who had lost somebody to cancer.

The lap of honour around the lake with lit candles was touching and beautiful.
