UNIVERSITY STAFF JOIN THE WATERFRONT FESTIVAL

 

Two marketing officers at the University of Lincoln will be joining in the fun at this yearís Waterfront Festival.

 

Jacqueline Mayer (33) and Karen Raynes (34) have organised a traditional style fete at the festival to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.

 

Both will be in the University of Lincolnís atrium in the main academic building during the two-day event.

 

Children of all ages can join in the fun with name the teddy, guess the number of sweets and a lucky dip.

 

And thereís fun for the big kids too with the Mercedes Smart Car balloon challenge.

The pair will take part in Ultimate Challenge 2004 Trek Peru, a five-day trek along the ancient Inca Trail, in September.

 

But before they can embark on their trip the two women have to raise £6,000 for the cancer research charity.
