Raising money for The Fountain Centre and Pancreatic Cancer UK


We’re a group of villagers from Coldharbour in Surrey who love walking. For the last two years we’ve put our walking to good use and taken part in the London Moonwalk to raise money for breast cancer.

This year, however, things are different. Over the last 15 months two members of our group have lost a sister (Annie) and a best friend (Yola) to cancer and one has watched her daughter (Melanie) suffer through breast cancer, now thankfully in remission. The loss of loved ones makes this year’s walk a very personal one and we are challenging ourselves to walk up to 26 miles to fundraise for different charities in honour of Annie and Yola. We will also be using each mile to celebrate Melanie and the battle she fought to get to remission.

Our target is to raise £4,000 in total and split it equally between Pancreatic Cancer UK and The Fountain Centre. We are undertaking our marathon walk on Sunday May 21st 2023. We are asking for any level of donation to help us achieve our goal. These two non-profit organisations make a huge difference to people’s lives and we really want to support the critical work they undertake. However much you are able to give, ’thank you’ from all of us - Gaye Charlton, Heidi Fitch, Carol Row, Helen Simkins, Donna Newman, Jane Dalgleish, Emma Moreno, Su Jones, Penny Derbyshire, Susannah Lovis, Bex Clarke & Amanda Hanlin

Pancreatic Cancer UK - pancreatic cancer is one of the toughest and most underfunded of cancers. More than half of people diagnosed die within 3 months and by 2026 it is expected that more people will die from pancreatic cancer than breast cancer. Just £11 can buy necessary equipment, £14 can fund a nurse on a support line and £29 can fund research into diagnosing people earlier.

The Fountain Centre - people say that the level of care, emotional support and practical help provided during illness, is crucial in helping them live as fully as possible. The Fountain Centre provides complementary therapies for cancer patients across the physical, emotional, social and spiritual spectrum, enabling patients to take back control of their lives at a time when it’s really needed.
