A tree has been planted in memory of mum-of-two Rebecca Griffiths who lost her battle with cancer in 2016.

Rebecca, from Huntindon, was diagnosed with bowel and liver cancer in 2014 and started running to help her through her cancer treatment before setting up Team Bex and inspiring hundreds of people to join her. She managed to raise more thean £80,000 for the Hunts Community Cancer Network, Hinchingbrooke Hospital and Bowel Cancer UK.

The tree was planted at Woodlands Drive, in Huntingdon, on March 9 and family and Team Bex supporters took part in the event.

Team Bex continues to encourage children and adults to take up exercise and members take part in running events across Cambridgeshire as well ast the park runs at Hinchingbrooke Country Park on Saturday.
