THE World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) is offering schools, community groups and businesses the chance to take part in the annual Beat the Banana! event this May.
Last year, participants staged exciting fund-raising days for the cancer prevention charity through events like fun runs with runners chasing a banana-suited competitor or penalty shoot-outs with a banana goalkeeper. Staging Beat the Banana! gives communities the chance to enjoy a fun day of activities while raising money for WCRF’s important research and education programmes. For those who want to arrange their own Beat the Banana! event, WCRF supplies an event pack including a banana costume and free promotional materials including balloons, collection tins, sponsorship forms and posters.
To find out how to take part or to organise your own Beat the Banana! event, visit www.beatthebanana.org or call 020 7343 4205.
