Family prepares to walk seven-and-a-half miles in aid of North London Hospice
A family of 11 are limbering up to pound the pavements of London to raise money for a North Finchley charity.
Larraine Wolman, 58, and her nearest and dearest will take part in the Big Fun Walk on Sunday April 7 to raise money for North London Hospice in Woodside Avenue.
The hospice cared for her father Tony Davis in the last few weeks of his life and the family is hoping to raise as much money as it can for the hospice.
Mrs Wolman, of Edgware, said: “Dad spent around 16 weeks at the hospice in 2011. The staff and volunteers were absolutely wonderful. They were angels.
“When Dad first arrived at the inpatient unit his health actually improved because of the love and care he was given. We are so grateful for everything they did for our family. It is our turn now to support them.”
Mrs Wolman will complete the seven-and-a-half mile walk, which starts at East Finchley underground station, with family members including sister Sandy, their husbands Stuart and Richard, and their children.
The hospice, which provides practical, emotional and spiritual support to terminally ill people and their families, hopes to get 1,500 walkers taking part in the Big Fun Walk.
