We would like to say a huge thank you to Bethany Bennett and Kelly Brown from Workington who set themselves a challenge of running 100 miles in March and have raised just over £1,370 for Hospice at Home West Cumbria!


Sister-in-laws Bethany and Kelly, decided to fundraise for two charities close to their hearts, The MS Society and Hospice at Home West Cumbria – in memory of three inspirational women; Joan Bennett, Lorraine Bennett and Mary Wordsworth.

Bethany said, “Although it has been a tough month, it has been lovely to complete this in memory of three inspirational women that we miss daily. Myself and Kelly set up this challenge with the hope of raising around £100 for each charity. We are truly blown away with the generosity of people and it shows how appreciative families are of the work that the charities do.


On the 1st March, we witnessed a comet fly past, which was special and seemed fitting for the start of the month ahead! The challenge has certainly been tough at times and running just shy of 5 miles daily started to take it’s toll towards the end, but we finished on Sunday 28th March in the torrential rain”. 


Congratulations to you both on such a great achievement. You have raised a fantastic amount, which will enable us to carry on caring for patients and families in our local communities.
