Funeral director raises money and awareness

Funeral Director, Janice Hutton of Gateway Funeral Services in Birkenshaw is preparing to raise money and awareness in the continued fight against breast cancer, as she takes part in the 21st MoonWalk London.Starting and finishing at Clapham Common, and accompanied by Susan Armitage, Pat and Katie
Rozental and 15,000 other fundraisers, Janice will also be wearing a uniquely decorated bra to take
on the 26.2 mile challenge on Saturday 12 May 2018.

In January 2015 Janice was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and after four operations, six months of
chemotherapy, radiotherapy and many hospital appointments, she is now beginning to get her life

Janice said, “Having had such wonderful care and support from so many people I felt that I
would like to do something to help other people who find themselves on this difficult journey.

“My challenge is not only to walk the 26.2 miles, but also to hopefully raise over £1500.00. I started
my training in February, and before May aim to walk from my home in Huddersfield to each of the
local crematoriums in turn, which are challenges in themselves.

“In the UK 1 in 8 women, and up to 350 men, are diagnosed with breast cancer each year and if I can help just one of those people, the challenge will have been worth it.”
