THE race is on for staff from the Co-operative Group's Grandstand Road supermarket in Hereford as they set off on the Race for Life at the local leisure centre to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
The team of eleven women and three children aptly named 'We go further so you don't have to' completed the 5K race in under one hour with the best time being 37 minutes.
Co-ordinator and staff member Jackie Savage said: "It was a great day for all involved and for a very worthwhile cause. The whole team from the Co-op would like to thank friends, family and customers for sponsoring us and we raised a grand total of £ 630."
The society's regional chief officer Mark Roberts added his congratulations: "The staff at the store have done remarkably well and we are proud to support the Race for Life."
