A mum and daughter joined the six-mile Jubilee Morecambe Bay Walk last weekend to raise funds for a local cancer foundation.


Kirsty Littlewood, 35, from Broadgate in Preston, and her mum, Alison Littlewood, 59, from Hoghton, joined the Happy Hippy Wanderers to raise funds for Rosemere Cancer Foundation.

They participated in the walk to offer their gratitude to the Rosemere team – as Alison is currently being treated in the centre at Royal Preston Hospital after she was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer in 2019, aged just 56.

Kirsty said: “We had a great time, we met some lovely people whilst doing the challenge, we had some delightful brownies, and the weather held out too.

“It wasn’t just for my mum, as we also dedicated the walk in memory of loved ones lost to cancer, which sadly affects one in two people.”

Kirsty, Alison and the team completed the six-mile Cross Bay Walk at Morecambe Bay last Sunday and have raised £585, smashing their £400 target.

Alison said: “We had a marvellous time completing the Cross Bay Walk in aid of the Rosemere Cancer Foundation.

“There were nine of us all together, and Kirsty and the rest of the team made it a fantastic experience, so we had a lot of fun.

“It hasn’t just been the Rosemere team supporting myself and my family through this difficult time.

“I would also like to mention the Macmillan charity, which has also been amazing.”
