A GROUP of four women are walking Hadrian’s Wall National Trail this June. The walk is to try and raise money for the Worcestershire Royal Hospital in memory of Beccy Amos, who died, aged 26, from an incredibly rare cancer.

Beccy, who lived in Welland, died at the beginning of the year from a rare cancer of the bile duct. Her mother, Sally Amos and her friends, have decided to walk in her memory to raise money for the chemotherapy unit. Also walking are Karen Hughes, Fran Scott, Wendy Green and Reba Minett and the woman have already smashed their £1,500 target and have nearly £8,000 pledged.

Sally Amos said: “My friends and I are embarking on a walk, in honour and memory of Beccy, my daughter, who died last year after a diagnosis of cholangiocarcinoma, a rare, aggressive and terminal cancer. We are hoping to raise funds to buy equipment for the chemotherapy suite, maybe a chair.

"The medical staff were incredibly kind to her there and we want to help make as many patients as comfortable as possible, if we can.”

Sally said any money made above the group’s target will go to another cancer charity. She said: “We will then donate any additional funds to Cancer Research to help beat this horrific disease.

"Beccy, herself, participated in several charity events in her short life, and we want to complete this challenge following in her footsteps. In the 10 months before her death, this dreadful disease presented my daughter with challenges that no-one should have to go through.

"This is why we are determined to complete the walk and, with your help, raise funds to make a difference. We are funding the walk ourselves, therefore, every penny donated will go to the two causes chosen in Beccy’s memory."

The walk is 90 miles - Carlisle to Newcastle - and they will start on Friday, June 13 and complete the walk on Friday, June 18. The group have already been training on the Malvern Hills.
