PEOPLE are being urged to pull on their walking boots to raise money for Sue Ryder.

A Yorkshire Three Peaks walk is being held to raise money for the charity, which runs Oxenhope hospice Manorlands.

The event – on Saturday, June 10 – is being organised by Jonathan Smith, whose late wife Tina was cared for in her final days by Sue Ryder's Wheatfields Hospice in Leeds.

She died in May last year.

"We were allocated a wonderful Sue Ryder nurse from the community team called Julie and she was phenomenal," says Jonathan.

"Tina was in daily pain, but the nurses and doctors did everything they could to manage her symptoms and make her as comfortable as possible.

"The support Tina and our family received was nothing short of amazing."

People can sign up to tackle the full Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge – a 24.5-mile walk taking in the summits of Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-ghent – or take on a six-mile route, encompassing just Pen-y-ghent.

Andrew Wood, community fundraising manager at Manorlands, says: "This is a beautiful tribute to Tina and a wonderful way to bring the local community together."
