  Tickets are 10 Euros and ALL the money will go to   UK CANCER RESEARCH .
 2 Hours of Non stop English for a good cause .
 Refreshments offered .
  I was greatly supported by all ABC Cellar members this year after losing my English dad to Cancer and have  decided to change my lifestyle,  eat better , drink more water  and take up regular sport...
 This Race is for Women and Breast Cancer research  , but men can come to the Games Night of course or sponsor me in support.
 What better way to set myself yet another challenge on the road to better health and  to help us all to fight cancer by having fun at the ABC Cellar together .
