A Burnham-on-Sea woman is taking part in a charity walk to raise funds for Bowel Cancer UK in memory of her brother.

Carly Lemon will be taking on the five mile sponsored walk in September in memory of her brother Nathan Wilkins, 42, who sadly passed away this year after being diagnosed with stage four bowel cancer in August 2018.

The 37-year-old said she is determined to make more people aware of the disease and raise much needed funds for Bowel Cancer UK.

Carly said: “He was a wonderful father and husband and will be greatly missed by all his family and friends.

"I’d really like to make a difference and anything I can do to raise funds for the life-saving work of Bowel Cancer UK."

The five mile walk on September 28 will take place along Cardiff Bay and walkers will have the chance to soak up the scenery of the barrage with spectacular views of the Bristol Channel.

Bowel cancer is the fourth most common cancer in Wales and the second biggest cancer killer.

Every year more than 2,200 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer and over 900 people die from the disease. However it’s treatable and curable especially if diagnosed early.

Wales Fundraising Manager for Bowel Cancer UK, Michael Locke, said: "We are thrilled to have Carly and the team taking part in Walk Together and raising funds for the charity. For us, at Bowel Cancer UK, this means we can continue with our vital work of saving lives, enabling research and improving the quality of life of everyone affected by bowel cancer.

“Walk Together is for all ages and abilities and you can walk with friends, family and colleagues, or invite your local community to join you.”
