Sian Peel, from Euxton, has completed a trio of St Catherine’s fundraising events in memory of her husband Nigel.
Accountant and dad-of-one, Nigel, attended St Catherine’s Day Therapy after his glioblastoma brain tumour diagnosis in 2014.
Sian completed her final fundraiser with her mum, Ann Cotgreave on July 1st.
The Moonlight and Memories Walk, which set off from the Lostock Hall hospice, went through Bamber Bridge, Preston and Penwortham, before finishing back at the hospice.
Sian said: “We both thoroughly enjoyed the walk! We had tea and cake at The Mill beforehand and then took part in the warm up. By the time we started the walk we were wet through, you couldn’t see a thing – but the atmosphere and walk was incredible, it was really good fun.
“I’m completely amazed that I’ve accomplished the three challenges I set out to do. The encouragement and support has been absolutely incredible. I’m extremely grateful to everyone who has supported me and helped me raise £4,000 for the hospice.”
St Catherine’s fundraiser, Hayley Jackson, said: “We’re extremely grateful to Sian and her family, for completing the trio of St Catherine’s fundraisers. It’s great to hear that she was able to enjoy the bike ride and walk with close family members, while remembering Nigel.
“Without the support from people like Sian, in the community, the charity would not be able to continue providing our vital work and support to people with life-shortening illness in Central Lancashire, when they need it the most.”
