After walking over 140 miles in 7 days, Rosemere's Chief Officer, Sue Thompson, finally reached the Chemotherapy Unit at Burnley General Hospital yesterday evening to a warm welcome and cold drinks courtesy of Unit staff. She walked all the way from Barrow, stopping off at every cancer unit that comes under the Rosemere umbrella - at Kendal, Lancaster, Blackpool, Preston, Chorley, Blackburn and finally Burnley!
Accompanied for 5 of the 7 days by Consultant Oncologist, Dr Gerry Skailes, Sue was also joined along the way by family, colleagues, friends and supporters. "It made a real difference to have people walking with us each day and their company helped a lot when the going got tough. Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the last 7 days, helping us reach our goal and raise over £2,200 for the 20th Anniversary Appeal."
