Wife from Chichester walks 100 miles for her husband

Have your say

Two generations of a family will walk 100 miles along the South Downs Way to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society.

Cheryl Letts, from Chichester will be joined by her son Adam and daughter Abi on the walk, and is hoping to raise more than £1,000 for the charity, which has supported her family.

Cheryl’s husband of 32 years Chris was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in December 2010 at the age of 54.

She said: ‘On diagnosis, Chris could no longer drive as his ability to process information and make decisions was already significantly impaired.

‘I have learnt to try to make the most of every day as I have fantastic memories of so many good times over 32 years with Chris.’

The trio, who have been taking on their task in stages, will pass the 100-mile mark on August 23.
