Skin4Life Two Saints Way Walk

It’s a 7am start at Chester Cathedral for the Skin4Life sponsored walk

On Saturday 15th July a group of walkers completed the opening 23.5 miles of The Two Saints
Way from Chester to Nantwich and in the process raised £1,400 for their Skin4Life project which
Judith Jackson explains here:

Our Skin4Life charity was formed after my husband Richard was successfully treated for terminal
malignant melanoma in 2007 when Archie was 3 and Mabel was 10 months old. He was treated
with a ground breaking trial drug which saved his life and offered hope to others.

Walkers pause before leaving the towpath at Christelton

We realised after such amazing care from the team at The Christie just how important fund raising
is for continued research, better treatments and a brighter future for melanoma patients.
We have raised over £45,000 so far.

Richard’s brother Simon and his wife Elaine started the annual Skin4Life walk as a thank-you to
The Christie 7 years ago and this blister giving, gruelling, crippling and mainly rewarding event has
gained support and strength year on year to become the wonderful event it is today!

Simon and Elaine have sent these encouraging comments about the day’s walk:

“We would like to pass on our thoughts after walking on Saturday 15th July 2017. Well, we loved
it! The route is better signposted than I originally thought and it certainly leant itself to a true day’s
walking challenge, with superb views, amazing churches and fantastic Cheshire countryside. In
fact we can’t wait now to navigate the middle section.

For your information, we have over £1,400 on our just giving website with still more sponsorship
money to come in, so the route proved to be challenging enough for people to realise the efforts
going in and donate appropriately.

I have attached three photos from the day to emphasise the feel good factor that ensued over the
nine walking hours.”
