A shopworker overcame her fear of heights to help raise £1,000 for Nightingale House Hospice in memory of her sister.
Diane Williams, who works at Marks & Spencer in Eagles Meadow, embarked on the 18-mile walk starting at Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, which towers 126ft above the ground.
Diane admitted: “I was absolutely terrified and was shaking all the time.
“I am really scared of heights, but I had one of the girls in front holding my hand, another beside me and one behind holding my other hand, and managed to do it. I didn’t look down though.”
Colleague Delyth Williams and six other friends joined in on the walk in memory of Diane’s sister Karen who suffered from liver cancer and was cared for by the hospice before her death 10 years ago.
Delyth said: “I went along to support Diane as a friend. It was a challenging walk, but enjoyable, and I’m pleased we made so much money for the hospice.”
Margaret Hollings, area fundraiser for Nightingale House Hospice, said: “All of us are so grateful for the work of fundraisers like Diane and her friends.
“All our supporters should be proud in knowing that they make a real difference to the lives of local patients.”
Diane’s group of friends have previously walked 34 miles over two days for charity and are already planning next year’s fundraiser – another 34-mile trek in Cheshire.
