Gutsy Gracie Poulton is keen to make her late great aunt proud when she enters her first Race for Life this summer at just seven years old.

The determined youngster, from Wilberfoss, will line-up alongside her mum Maria and hundreds of other women at the Knavesmire, in York, to take part in the 5km event on Sunday 2 June in aid of Cancer Research UK.

Gracie was inspired to enter the event after her great aunt Linda died of cancer recently.
