Lowestoft woman on charity walk

A LOWESTOFT woman will be putting her best and fastest foot forward this weekend as she attempts to walk 62 miles from London to Brighton in just 24 hours, to help the fight against cancer.

Cheryl Meades, 41, will be joined by her friends Lynn Ford, 49, and Jill Nunn, 51, both from the Beccles area, as she takes part in the London 2 Brighton Challenge to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.

For their walk, which starts tomorrow, the friends have called themselves The Blister Pack.

Cheryl, who along works with Lynn at Great Yarmouth-based Sign Waves, decided to take part as a way of keeping fit and because her father, John Meades, died from cancer 13 years ago aged 60.

Between them, the friends have previously taken part in the Three Peaks Challenge and the Nijmegen March in Holland. But to stay in good shape, Cheryl has used her lunchtimes tor training, by walking the paths of Gapton Hall Industrial Estate, and going on long beach and country walks at the weekend.

Although the friends hope to finish their walk in 24 hours, they have up to 30 hours to complete it.
