The Fabulous Story of Stitch London (formerly Stitch and Bitch London)

Racing for Life (and for CAKE)

Posted by Deadly Knitshade on May 11, 2009

On the 6th of May Stitch and Bitch London and the lovely Tina B took part in Cancer Research’s Race for Life in London’s Battersea Park.

We knit Cancer Fighter hats as we walked the five kilometres of the race, in support and in memory of Cancer Fighters we know and love and those we sadly lost their fights.

We crossed the finish line dead last to the cheers and clapping of everyone watching, as we kept pace with Tina who managed the whole race despite walking with a stick.

Altogether Tina B and the S&B London team raised a whopping £2754.10 for Cancer Research. And probably ate more cake than anyone else racing.

You can still donate to get our Cancer Fighter Hat Patterns here if you fancy doing your bit.
