Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. 

In May 2016 I will be taking part in a five day trek along some of the less travelled parts of the Great Wall of China in memory of my dear friend Angela who sadly passed away in December 2014.  

Angela was fit and healthy and had celebrated her 60th birthday in October 2014 a month after we returned from a trek in the Canadian Rockies.  In late November she became ill and was diagnosed with cancers in her brain, lung and adrenal gland.  Two weeks later Angela was admitted to St Clare Hospice where she spent her final days being cared for with kindness and compassion by the dedicated medical team.  Angela's family and friends were supported through this difficult time with the same kindness and compassion.  St Clare Hospice is a welcoming, friendly and calm environment and the staff there are very deserving of our help and support to enable them to continue their amazing work.

On our return from The Rockies Angela and I had already decided that we would trek The Great Wall in 2016 and it is an honour to take part in this trek in her memory and to raise funds to support the hospice.
