A night watch control officer from Poole Harbour Commissioners has conquered her first-ever Race for Life.

On Sunday June 24 Caroline Mawdsley congregated at Poole Park along with thousands of women and girls to take part in the annual 5km event.

After only four hours sleep, Caroline completed the race in just over 27 minutes and has so far raised £180.00 for Cancer Research UK.

Caroline said: “It was a busy night watch so I was extremely tired but the atmosphere along the race was fantastic and there was a great turn out, plus the rain held off!”
