A mother and daughter from Norton are planing to complete a 24-mile trek in the Peak District this weekend in memory of ‘a truly amazing woman’.
Sarah and Ellie Catchpole are taking on the challenge in aid of charity Breast Cancer Now in the hope of saving others from the pain of losing loved ones to the ‘cruel illness’.
Sarah explained: “Sadly I lost my mum, Ellie’s nana, to breast cancer 13 years ago and we want to do something special in memory of her.
“She was a truly amazing woman who always showed huge courage and strength. She always had a smile on her face even when she must have been feeling so poorly.”
She added: “It is not going to be easy for us, but we will do it and I’m sure my mum will be watching over us every step of the way.”
The trek poses an extra challenge for Ellie who underwent knee reconstruction surgery last year and was unable to compete in any sports for nine months
“She wanted to do this to challenge herself and do something special in memory of her nana,” said Sarah.
