Now fiance Mark Wade from Stanton, his brothers Ashley and Ian, cousin Aaron Goodridge and friend Dan Watts are taking on the three peaks challenge in her memory.

Funds will go towards a new birthing pool room at the hospital which will be named after her, and overlook the courtyard where a tree has been planted in her memory.

They are undertaking the challenge from May 9 to May 11, the anniversary of her funeral.

“It is going to be an emotional time for me. But we will all pull together,” said Mark.

“We have had so much support already. I think Hannah would be gobsmacked.

“She was the most kind, generous, loving person you could ever meet. Ske never had a bad word to say about anyone.

“For me, I want to carry on her name. Everything I’m doing I’m doing for her.”

You can donate to collection pots at the Stanton Cock, BP garage, the hospital, Clarkes of Walsham and The Greyhound at Botesdale.

There are also 3peaksforhan wrist bands available for £1 each.

A charity darts night takes place from 8pm on January 18 – £2 entry.

The men are also looking for business support including clothing, a minibus and petrol costs, to enable the challenge.

You can donate via online banking to Halifax account 10863764 sort code 11-01-23 or contact the men to make cash or cheque donations.
