Active volunteer Steve Jones is donning his walking boots to raise funds for a bereavement charity.
Steve Jones, from Runcorn, is walking the North Cheshire Way in 2019 to mark Child Bereavement UK’s 25th anniversary. An experienced walker, Steve has raised £5,000 for the charity in the past with treks along the Cumbria Way and Hadrian’s Wall.
His new challenge will see him walk a 70-mile route which stretches from the Wirral to the Peak District, taking in some of Cheshire’s most beautiful countryside. Steve and walking partner Peter Coward will pass several places of interest including Alderley Edge, Lyme Park and the Anderton Boat Lift. Steve is already in training to ensure he’s fit for the walk, hiking eight miles every weekend
Child Bereavement UK has an office in Widnes, which provides guidance and support to bereaved families in Cheshire and across the North West. The charity supports families and educates professionals when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement.
“I’m really looking forward to my next walk. My wife Lynn works at Child Bereavement UK’s office in Widnes, so I know the funds I raise will help the charity support bereaved families to rebuild their lives. For me, that’s really rewarding.”
