Rock Choir members are set to hit the high notes at Race for Life in King’s Lynn to help fund life-saving research.

Members of Downham Market, King’s Lynn, Peterborough, Swaffham and Wisbech rock choirs will perform at Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life at Houghton Hall on Tuesday June 27.

They have already helped give a boost to participants in Peterborough and Stamford.

Members want to celebrate 30 years of the renowned event series by transporting crowds back to the 1990s, with hits from that decade such as Dreams by the Cranberries.

Helping motivate them is fellow choir member Tricia Jones, 64, from Wisbech, a previous Race for Life participant who first took part just a day before undergoing an operation for breast cancer in 2004.

Tricia was wheeled into theatre with her Race for Life medal hanging above her bed and her surgeon would tell other patients this story to inspire them.

Along with the rock choir groups, Tricia, now living free of cancer, is hoping to encourage people of all ages and abilities to sign up to their nearest event at

Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life, in partnership with headline sponsor Standard Life, part of Phoenix Group, is an inspiring series of 3k, 5k, 10k, Pretty Muddy and Pretty Muddy Kids events that raise millions of pounds every year to help beat cancer by funding crucial research.

This is the 30th year of Race for Life and participants will receive an exclusive medal to mark the milestone.

More than 500 people are set to take part in 3k and 5ks which will start at 7pm.
