500 miles for Jack
Hunstanton's Margi Blunden is raising funds for the Queen's Medical Centre and Jack Fisher and you are invited to join her on a fundraising walk.
Twenty-four-year-old Jack Fisher is Margi's grandson who was diagnosed with a rare brain tumour in June. His Mum, Lottie, who also lives in Hunstanton, is a midwife at the QE Hospital, King’s Lynn.
Jack, who is a student at Nottingham University, studying for his Masters degree, has been in Queen’s Medical Centre Nottingham Intensive Care Unit since his first operation in June and has had 12 operations since then.
The family is raising money for the work they do in the intensive care unit and also for Jack’s future. Fundraising walks have been organised in different parts of the country on 17th September and the family hope that a total of 500 miles will be walked on the day.
Margi said: "We welcome you to join us on Saturday 17th September.
"The entire planned walk will cover 5 miles but feel free to walk just as far as you wish.
"From 10.45 onwards there will be sweet and savoury refreshments and hot and cold drinks back at the Heritage Centre. We would love to see you back here after your walk.
"Thank you for joining us and walking for Jack!"
