“I’m trying to cram as much in as I can for Marie Curie”
Marie Curie Nurse Judith Blades is taking on this year’s Walk to Remember at Wollaton Hall in Nottingham.
It’s not her first time fundraising for Marie Curie. In the past she’s tried her hand at collecting for the Great Daffodil Appeal, abseiling, skydiving and zip-lining across the River Trent. It’s all part of trying to do as much as she can for Marie Curie.
“I lead a fairly full life, so I’m trying to cram as much in as I can for Marie Curie… it’s in a good cause,” she said.
“We’re all ambassadors for Marie Curie”
Judith is proud of her work and the huge effort that goes into making Walk to Remember a success. It’s also a chance to tell more people about Marie Curie and explain how important the work Marie Curie Nurses do is to people and their families.
“I like to be able to talk to people regarding my role…we’re all ambassadors for Marie Curie”.
Judith gets her family involved too and does many of her challenges with her husband. When it comes to finding support, Judith starts close to home:
“I’m approaching friends and family, they’ve been quite generous”
The 10k walk will take participants around the grounds of the Elizabethan Wollaton Hall before ending with a picnic and live music for everyone who takes part.
