Blueharts Hockey Club Ladies fourth team ran the Cancer Research 10K in central London on Sunday.

Starting at Trafalgar Square the ten-strong squad gave it their all to help smash Cancer as they raised an incredible £3,000 – far exceeding their original £1,000 target.

The loyal pals including Jenny Burr, Sam Addison, Sarah Wilmot, Heather Storey, Helen Ferguson, Louise Kenyon, Gina Joseph, Teresa Donald, Alice Winton and honorary 4th teamer for the day David Addison, ran to honour one of their players who faces her own battle with cancer.

Debbie Thomson, from Hitchin said: “I’m so proud of Blueharts Ladies fourth team.

“Not only are they playing great hockey and fighting for promotion, but they’ve also helped me in my fight against breast cancer. I just wish I could’ve been running with them.”
