A Fulwood dancer who should be entertaining holidaymakers in Great Yarmouth is instead spending lockdown running to raise funds for Rosemere Cancer Foundation.

Beth Woods joined the entertainment team at Haven’s Caister-on-Sea Holiday Park in January. Following training, Beth was just a week into the job when the coronavirus pandemic forced the park to be closed and most site staff sent home.

Beth said: “When I rang home, my mum was unwell with symptoms she feared meant she had coronavirus.

“She was scared of giving it to me and felt I’d be safer where I was. Haven was great and gave me my own caravan to lockdown in.”

Having become marooned at the resort, Beth is now running three miles a day every day until the end of May to raise money for Rosemere.

The charity is close to Beth’s heart after both her gran and aunt received its support during successful cancer treatment at Rosemere Cancer Centre, the region’s specialist cancer treatment centre at the Royal Preston Hospital.

While Beth’s mum has made a full recovery, Beth has decided to stay on in Great Yarmouth until lockdown restrictions ease and she completes her challenge.
