A Walk For Mike

“I’m just back in the land of the living, or at least a land where my legs don’t ache and I’ve stopped falling asleep! We did it… 90 miles in all. It was great.

We had some wonderful moments, lovely generosity from strangers, and have raised over £3000 to date.”

Our County President Janet Kettringham and husband Phil have recently returned from a 90 mile walk in aid of the Brain Tumour Research charity in memory of their brother in law Mike.

The walk started at Lepton, near Huddersfield where he was born Sunday 28 May and arrive in Bolton-le-Sands on Saturday 3 June, where he lived all his married life. The route took in the sites of Slaithwaite, Scammonden Dam, Hebden Bridge, Hard castle Crags, Worsthorne, Pendle Hill, Clitheroe, over the Forest of Bowland, Caron, St Johns Hospice in Skerton, then on to Bolton-le-Sands….phew! The family planted Mike’s oak tree at Halton, near Lancaster.

Congratulations to Janet, Phil and all the family who undertook the walk. If you would like to sponsor Janet and Phil and help the Brain Tumour Research continue their fantastic work you can do so through the justgiving Link: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/J-SUGDEN
