The kids are walking to beat pancreatic cancer

My children have decided to raise money for their beloved "Nanny Mel".  We are going to do an 8mile walk (quite a lot for for little legs) on the 25th July.  Here is what they have to say:

My Nanny Mel was really nice and gentle.  She got a really bad disease and a year after she died. That made me feel sad. I want to help because I don't want any other person to get that disease.

Charities help people with diseases if we raise money for them.  Can you help Raise money to help the people who have pancreatic cancer?

by Leon (Aged 7)

Last year my Nanny Mel died of pancreatic cancer.  It was a really sad time for her family and friends because she was such a kind and caring person. I don't want another family to lose a relative because it is such a traumatic experience so me, my mum, brother and dad are going to raise money for a charity that researches a better cure for people with the same disease as my Nanny had.
