Becky is now being supported by CLIC Sargent, and ‘Team Becky’ is calling for the local community to help them achieve their fundraising target.
Staff and customers are holding a series of fundraising events and challenges to raise money, including a gruelling triathlon that will see them climb Ben Nevis before canoeing 97K up the Caledonian Canal and cycling 117K back to the start, all within 48 hours, as well as a series of special events at the pub.
Becky, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in January, said: “When I went to see my boss to let him know, he came bouncing up and showed me these posters he’d got done for a fundraising event for CLIC Sargent.
“He said it was a charity that helped children and young people with cancer and I just said, 'I’ve got something to tell you'. It was a strange coincidence, really weird.”
How CLIC Sargent helped
Becky added: “CLIC Sargent let me know about the financial support available to help me cope with the extra costs of cancer.
“I could see a light at the end of the tunnel and felt much better about everything.”
