Three members of our team have decided to take on the mammoth challenge of walking 106km around the beautiful Isle of Wight all in aid of our charity!

Diane Diver, Rachel Cash and Rachel Lee will be walking around the coastline the island over two days, 29th – 30th April.


They have started their training and will be doing some lengthy walks in between now and April, gearing up for the challenge date!

The girls will be joined by Rachel Lee’s sister and all four of them have kindly decided to fundraise for us, for which we are so grateful! If you would like to show your support, please donate to their fundraising pages through Just Giving; the links to the pages are below:

Rachel Lee says – “I wanted to try something new and challenging this year; something I have never done before (and also to shed some baby weight!)  What better way to do this than walking the stunning Isle of Wight with friends, all while raising money for such a great cause. The training is going well and we are stepping it up each week to get ready for the challenge ahead! ”

Rachel Cash says – “Over the past few years I have experienced the loss of family members to Cancer. I am taking part in the Isle of Wight Challenge in their memory, to raise funds for Hope for Tomorrow who I am extremely proud to be associated with. The funds raised will enable Hope for Tomorrow to continue to bring cancer care closer to home, giving patients back precious time that would have been spent travelling and waiting at busy Oncology Centres.”

I have chosen to embark on a fundraising challenge to walk the coastal path of the beautiful Isle of Wight, 106 km/65 miles over 2 days (it involves camping!) with my lovely colleagues Rachel Maltby-Lee and Rachel Cash; to support the charity and in memory of family members I have lost to cancer, including my Mum.  
If you are able to, I am sincerely grateful for your donation- it will make a positive impact to those who are less fortunate – and your support will keep me inspired when the going gets tough! 

We would like to wish the girls the best of luck and thank them for their support!
