A Corby woman is to trek up Mount Snowdon in memory of her father who died from lung cancer.
Kelly Stewart, who lost her father Carl Stewart last year, will be joined by her friends to embark on the challenge of a lifetime in May this year to raise money for Age UK Northamptonshire, the charity which cared for her father
in the last days of his life.
Kelly said: “After fighting hard for just over six months, his body just couldn’t take any more. The district nurses and Age UK Northamptonshire helped our family immensely towards the end and we can’t thank them enough.”
A team of 20 friends and family are set to climb Mount Snowdon on Saturday, May 18, in memory of Carl. They have set up a Virgin Money web page to help raise £5,000, which will be used to help serve older people across Northamptonshire.
Kelly added: “Please dig deep and support this very worthy cause and help to give us some encouragement to get to the top of that mountain! Go Carl’s Angels!”
Fundraiser Susie Davies said: “It is so heart-warming when I talk to fundraisers who are actively supporting our Charity as a result of a service we have provided, in this case to Kelly’s father Carl.
“We wish the whole team good luck and we can’t wait to see the pictures from the climb. We value all our fundraisers as they enable us to keep supporting older people across Northamptonshire.”
