A FIVE-year-old is joining her mum on a charity run this weekend.

Effie Bradbury, from Kirkbymoorside, is running the 5k “very 2020 race for life” for Cancer Research with mum Samantha.

Samantha said: “A 5k run is some distance for my little squiggle but she wanted to do something to raise funds.

“Effie has seen cancer devastate my family. Her nanna had breast cancer and has thankfully recovered, but other family members are still fighting.”

Samantha added: “Effie wants to raise as much as possible so that other children can keep their nannas too.”

The pair will be running round Kirkbymoorside this Saturday, September 26. To make a donation, go to fundraise.cancerresearchuk.org/team/samanthas-team-161
