Canalside walk raises money in memory of Trevor

A WIFE led friends and family on a canalside walk to raise £1,000 in memory of her husband.

Dawn Roddis (52) and the group went from Rotherham to Sheffield in aid of the British Heart Foundation.

Dawn, of Clifton, said: “We all know someone that’s been affected by heart disease. Sadly it touches us all.

“In memory of my late husband Trevor I felt the need to give support to the BHF. It’s great to know that our efforts will make a difference in fighting for every heartbeat.

“The walk along the canal was fun, laughter with moments of sadness in memory of Trev. Our thoughts were with Trev in every step we took and this gave us strength to complete the 13.5-mile walk raising £1,021 along the way to support the BHF’s vital research.”

Coronary heart disease is the UK’s single biggest killer. The BHF has pioneered research to transform the lives of people living with heart and circulatory conditions for more than 50 years.

Lauren Mallinson, the charity’s South Yorkshire fundraising manager, said: “We’d like to thank Dawn and her family and friends for getting involved in such a fantastic event.
