Anne Garner, from Wistaston and a Learning Mentor at Cheshire College – South & West (Crewe Campus), and friends participated in a ‘Pink Ribbon Walk’ at Chatsworth House, Derbyshire in June this year, after the original event was postponed for a year due to the pandemic.
Anne completed the walk with three friends – Sarah Molden, Lynn Thomas and Janet Brown – known collectively as Anne’s Pink Ladies. Their ten-mile walk was part of the Pink Ribbon Challenge to raise money for Breast Cancer Now.
The walk started and finished in the grounds of the spectacular Chatsworth House and involved passing through the Peak District National Park.
Anne and her friends far exceeded their original target and raised over £1,400.
Breast Cancer Now is a charity steered by world-class research and powered by life-changing care, formed by the merger of Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now.
Anne Garner said: “So many charities have been impacted by this dreadful curse called COVID-19. They desperately need support to continue with the valuable work they do for people and families affected by cancer – even the smallest donation can make a huge difference. I had breast cancer in 2016 and thought doing this walk would be a nice thing to do to help other people and their families affected by this awful disease.”
Anne’s Pink Ladies are still accepting donations for their fundraising walk. To donate, please visit their JustGiving page.
