A Preston woman is celebrating her retirement through a 7,500 miles walk around Britain’s eye-watering coastline to raise money for the Anthony Nolan charity.

The charity saves the lives of people with a blood cancer or blood disorder by matching individuals willing to donate their stem cells to people who desperately need a lifesaving transplant.

Stella Parke set foot on Saturday 4 March, to mark a new beginning for her fundraiser ‘Blackpool2Blackpool’ over the course of 18 months.

The 66-year-old is shedding light on the ‘amazing work’ the Anthony Nolan charity do and how they helped her son survive leukaemia twice.

Stella has set up a Just Giving and Facebook page for people to discover her means of adventure and donate towards the blood cancer charity.

More than £1,000 has been raised so far with the target goal being £10K.

To make a donation visit the Just Giving Website, or visit the Blackpool2Blackpool Facebook page for live updates.
