NZ – RRT Greymouth assist Relay for Life March, 20 2016

At 7:30am Saturday morning a team of 9 RRT volunteers set up the RRT trailer and marquee, marked out the walking track, set up other marquees and tents for the Cancer Society Relay for Life event.

At lunchtime the catering team set up and prepared a 5:15pm meal for around 70 cancer survivors and their families and carers. The RRT team served up BBQ beef, vegie kebabs, corn on the cob, other vegetables and a salad.

This was followed by a dessert of mini pavlova with cranberry sauce and chocolate shards. About 30 to 40 walkers came along and were also served, a big effort that went down very well!

The ladies added extras like tablecloths, flowers and color coded ribbons and serviettes (yellow CS colours) which they really appreciated and commented on.

Feedback from the Cancer Society and also members of the public there on the day appreciated the example of teamwork displayed by the RRT.

Some people asked about donating to the RRT. As it was an event to raise funds for the  Cancer Society the RRT requested all donations should be directed to the Cancer Society instead.

    I was present on this day and might I say what a wonderful thing it was to have the RRT there. Some of their helpers walked around the track showing their support whilst the others were preparing the lovely meal for the carers and survivors. I feel what they done that day was a huge credit to them – even giving out the free bottles of water to the walkers was a nice touch! Well done RRT, you done a marvellous job! A credit to you all!
