Ref. 25807-11JENNY Lawson lost four stone to be able to take part in fundraising events like Cycle For Life being held on Sunday.

Jenny, 32, of Gorse Hill, weighed 15 stone when she decided to start losing weight three years ago.

By cutting out junk food and doing more exercise, Jenny, who works in human resources at Motorola, managed to get down to 11 stone.

Now Jenny takes part in as many fundraising events as she can.

She has taken part in the Swindon Race For Life, which raises money for Cancer Research UK, three times.

Now she is planning to take part in the charity's 15-mile Cycle For Life, which starts at 10am on Sunday in Lydiard Park.

She will be thinking of two close relatives who both died of cancer.

Jenny's grandfather, Francis Hillman, who lived in Old Town, died from a brain tumour at the age of 82.

And her mother's cousin, John Cowley, of Nythe, died of cancer in May at the age of 69.

She said: "I have known so many other people who have had different types of cancer.

"It has made me very aware of what cancer does to people, and I know how vital it is that we get as much money as possible into research.

"Now I am more healthy I can take part in fundraising events myself."

Organisers hope 600 people will take part in the Swindon Cycle For Life, raising £30,000.

The entry fee is £7.50 for adults and £4.50 for children under 18.
