A WELLESBOURNE woman who lost her husband to kidney cancer is in urgent need of a motorhome to help with a fundraising challenge.
Jane Cure and her brother Andy Coleman are preparing to walk 144 miles from Birmingham to London to raise funds for the James Whales Fund for Kidney Cancer in memory of her late husband Adrian, who died in March this year.
He and his wife had raised £35,000 for the cause since his diagnosis four years ago and Mrs Cure is determined to carry on supporting the charity.
But she and Mr Coleman have not yet managed to secure the loan of a motorhome or similar vehicle, which they will need to transport their luggage, food and refreshments along the way and provide them with a place to stay each night.
They begin their walk, which they are calling Walk for A Cure, on Wednesday August 31 and aiming to reach London on Saturday September 3 and to raise £10,000. People are welcome to join them along the way at any point on the route.
Anyone who is able to loan Mrs Cure and Mr Coleman a motorhome should immediately email firstname.lastname@example.org
