A former journalist who survived cancer has raised more than £1,000 in memory of a friend who died from the illness.
Julie first met Anna after being diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma several years ago.
Her treatment was successful, but sadly Anna passed away from breast cancer aged 41.
In her memory, Julie undertook a sponsored walk along 14 miles of the Welsh coastline.
Julie, who now runs a bed and breakfast in Hay-on-Wye, on the border of Wales and England, told the Times she had completed the challenge in Anna’s “spirit and memory”.
She added: “Macmillan is an amazing charity that has helped many people in different ways who are suffering with or have suffered with cancer.
“And I’ve been amazed at people’s generosity. My target of £750 was smashed within 48 hours and more than £1,000 in sponsorship has now been pledged.”
