I'm planning a 120-mile sponsored walk to raise money for Halesworth Community Nursing Care Fund, who helped my husband Bud before he passed away.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story.

I sadly lost Bud, my husband of 54-years, in June 2017 following a long and brave battle with cancer. I received invaluable help from Halesworth Community Nursing Care Fund (HCNCF) during those last few weeks, which meant that I was able to nurse him at home where he was at his happiest.

To me and my family, Bud was our rock. He had a quirky sense of humour and even in those last weeks could make me smile. He was truly a lovely and remarkable man, and will always be my hero.

Event details

120-mile coastal challenge

To honour Bud’s memory and as a way of thanking people for their incredible support, I will be raising money for HCNCF by completing a 120-mile sponsored walk to mark the anniversary of his death in June. Supported by members of my family, I will first trek the Suffolk Coastal Path from Lowestoft to Felixstowe, before taking on the Sandlings Walk, from Ipswich to Southwold. I hope to complete the challenge in around ten days.

Finishing the walk would be a real achievement for me as I will have recently have celebrated my 75th birthday. Its also likely to be an emotional few days, as it will give my family and myself the chance to share our memories of a wonderful man and reminisce about the happy times we spent together.

HCNCF made such a difference to us by providing the specialist equipment and additional nursing support to allow Bud to remain in the comfort of his own home in the last weeks of his life. I hope that by raising as much money as I can for the charity, other people will also be able to benefit from the same exceptional level of care which helped us so much.

Thank you so much for your interest and support.
