A WOMAN who watched her grandmother die from cancer has just completed the first of six gruelling challenges to help raise money.

Liza Nicol’s grandmother, Philomenia Bernie, died just four weeks after her cancer diagnosis, leaving her devastated but motivated to help others.

Miss Nicol, 38, completed a 26 mile walk around London last Sunday to raise money and awareness for Cancer Research.

She said: "It took me a little longer than expected, but I did it! It was really really cold, we set off in the dark and came back in the dark, but the views were incredible. It was a fantastic experience, I felt very emotional coming through the finish line. It was a really special moment. I am looking forward to Easter when I can do it all over again."

Miss Nicol is taking part in the Easter 50 Challenge in April. She will walk 50km around Windsor.

She has already raised £1040 of her £1600 goal. Donate at: www.fundraise.cancerresearchuk.org/
