Our fantastic supporter Carly rallied 35 friends and family members to take on a 13 mile walk from Saltaire to Leeds on what would have been her sons 13th birthday. Thomas, who was diagnosed in March 2011, sadly passed away aged 5 years old on the 20th April 2012 from Neuroblastoma. Carly arranged the special memorial walk with friends and family to take place on Saturday the 12th October.

Before the event Carly said:  “Along with 35 ladies I am walking along the canal from Saltaire into Leeds, which is exactly 13 miles. I’m doing it in memory of my son Thomas Daniel Mark Hudson, who sadly passed away aged five years old from Neuroblastoma. I am doing the memory walk because I wanted to do something on Thomas’s 13th birthday. So what better than walking with my friends and family all ladies in pink Candlelighters t-shirts raising money and raising awareness of children’s cancer?”

The fantastic team have raised raised a staggering £10,000! Thank you so much to the whole group for their amazing fundraising.
