A Penicuik woman is preparing to take part in the Race for Life in memory of her husband who died of cancer aged 34 last year.

Rhona Russell will be joined by family and friends when she takes part in the 5k event around Holyrood Park, Edinburgh, on June 15.

They are raising money for Cancer Research UK in memory of Rhona’s husband Blair, who died the week before Christmas.

Rhona (31), said: “It was all very sudden. He was diagnosed with lung cancer, which spread to his brain.”

Rhona is holding a coffee morning and bake sale at Ladywood Leisure Centre on Saturday from 10am to noon.
