Local resident and cancer survivor, Jo Taylor, completed, with her friends and supporters, a marathon 20 mile sponsored walk on Saturday 20th February raising over £2545 for The Christie.
Although the weather conditions were difficult, a mixed group of twenty-one people, including Jo’s two children, Regan and Faran, completed the walk from Diggle to The Christie in Didsbury.
Jo said, “I am very grateful for the support and help I got from my friends and colleagues. Without their help, none of this would be possible. It means a lot to me that so many people care and want to support me and the work of The Christe.
“Children at the nursery were brilliant. They helped us to make a fabulous banner by printing their painted footsteps and two of my work colleagues provided much needed support on route keeping us plied with hot drinks and bacon butties . All in all, we had a fantastic day in awful weather conditions and managed to raise lots of money for a great cause.”
This is one of twelve fundraising events that Jo Taylor is organising, with her friend Jo Cunningham, to take place during 2016. The next event will be a Ladies Night at Dobcross Bandclub in March.
