My Story

Thank you for looking at my page and thinking about donating. I’ll be thinking of my Nana Eileen and my Grandad Den while I walk the Shine walk and praying that future generations don’t have to deal with this stuff, with the help of Cancer Research. For Nana Eileen, who was a very shiny person in my life. I’m walking to keep her memory alive for my little girl Lois who didn’t quite arrive in time to meet her. And stretching my legs on behalf of her husband, GG, who would walk 500miles, if his legs would let him. For Grandad Den, who is missed by so many people, for his generosity and sense of fun. He probably wouldn’t have walked the 10k but would've happily driven it in an Austin Seven. with love Rach x Each year Cancer Research UK’s scientists get closer to beating cancer, and they’ve helped double survival rates in the last 40 years. But we can’t stop there. Only with our continued support can they turn this research into breakthroughs that save millions of lives. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now.
