Pink in the park

Ex-Hollyoaks girls join 500 for Sefton Park breast cancer cycle ride

Published on April 19th 2010.


Pink in the park

THE cherry blossom may be out, but former Hollyoaks stars Sarah Jayne Dunn and Helen Noble helped turn Sefton Park even pinker over the weekend.

More than 500 women got on their bikes for Breast Cancer Campaign as part of the second Pedal it Pink event to come to Liverpool, with both events expected to raise over £90,000 to help fund vital research into breast cancer.

After starting the rides Sarah Jayne said, “It’s been a fantastic turnout. Both Helen and I live in Liverpool so it’s great to see so much support from local people in the city. Lots of people are affected by breast cancer so it’s vital to keep funding the research and hopefully one day find a cure.”

Helen Noble added, “It’s been a brilliant day. People in Liverpool are always up for a charity event to support a good cause. Sarah and I will definitely take part next year on a tandem, all dressed in pink!”

Pedal it Pink attracted women and families from all over the county including local cyclist Debbie Clarke from Woolton who took part in the marathon distance with her sister Anne Croft from Bowring Park. The pair took on the cycling challenge after Debbie was diagnosed with breast cancer two weeks after they cycled in last year’s Pedal it Pink event. Debbie, who completed the marathon in 2hours 15minutes, raising £300, said “I’m really pleased I was able to complete it and had a great time. I will definitely be back next year.”

Over 5,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the North West each year, 320 of which are in Liverpool.

Catriona Wright, Events Manager at Breast Cancer Campaign, said: “It was wonderful to return to Liverpool, where we staged our first Pedal it Pink, and receive so much support again. We hope to come back to Merseyside in the not too distant future to make the event even bigger and pinker!”
