AN inspirational Crewe man who lost his wife to cancer has teamed up with a friend to organise a fundraising walk along Cheshire’s Sandstone Trail.

Roy Williamson and David Rowlands are putting their best foot forward for Cancer Research UK with their Striding the Sandstone charity event.

Roy, of Capesthorne Road, lost his wife Pat to cancer 3 years ago at the age of 67.

He said: “Pat put up a brave fight, which she lost just six weeks following diagnosis. The walk will be a great way of helping to raise those vital funds to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.”

The sponsored walk, on Sunday, March 24, will raise money for the charity’s local Crewe and Nantwich Committee.

A choice of 3, 5, 10 or 15 mile routes along the Cheshire Sandstone Trail are available as part of the fundraiser, with all courses starting and finishing at the Candle Workshops at Burwardsley.

David said: “The Sandstone Trail is a favourite area of mine. On a good day the views are magnificent.

“With such a range of courses, there’s one suitable for everyone so we would urge you to help make this a great success by asking your friends, family and colleagues to enter. Even your dog can come along and take part in what will be a great day out for all.”

Paula Jones, of Cancer Research UK, said: “David and Roy are an absolute inspiration and we can’t thank them enough for their continued support and dedication.”

Places on the walk must be booked in advance at £5 each. To book, or for further information, contact David Rowlands on 01270 768434 or 07990 516533 or email
