A March woman has raised £801 by taking part in a 100km walking challenge.

Lorna Hazeltine, who is manager of the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) shop in Whittlesey, successfully finished the Thames Path challenge by walking from Putney Bridge to Henley in 30 hours.

Lorna, who has worked at the EACH Whittlesey shop for four and half years since it opened, said: “I’d never done anything like this before and it certainly was a massive challenge for me.

“I’m so pleased to have completed the route in the time I did, it made all my training worth it.

“I am so passionate about the charity and the care they provide. Some of our regular customers use the charity’s services so I see first hand the difference it makes to their lives – I tried to think about those families to motivate me when I found the challenge tough.”

EACH cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions and supports their families.

The care and support is tailored for the needs of all family members and delivered where the families wish – in their own home, at hospital, in the community or at one of three hospices in Ipswich, Milton and Quidenham.
