Walking All Over Cancer

Librarian Teresa Stonestreet is ‘walking all over cancer’ again this March to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

Sarah, her great-niece, died from cancer at the age of seven, and Teresa is walking in her memory for every year she was on the planet; this is year four of her seven-year pledge.

Last year she exceeded her fundraising target of £1000 and hopes to do the same this year. Horsham resident, Teresa will be walking a minimum of 10,000 steps every day, the equivalent of approximately 150 miles, during her lunch break and after school around Farlington’s grounds to ensure she reaches her daily target.

“It is a lovely time of year to get outside to walk after the winter months. I am fortunate to work in beautiful countryside which makes my walks very enjoyable and at weekends I enjoy walking on the beach. I received lots of fantastic support last year, so I hope I will exceed £1000 again this year for this worthwhile cause,” said Teresa.
