The friends

Lindsay Sharples died at Pendleside Hospice in December last year and lifelong friend Heather Dall wanted to honour her and raise money in her memory.

Thus, Heather and other pals set off from the Hare and Hounds pub in Briercliffe to take part in ‘Lindsay’s Forever 43 Memory Walk’. The group was made up of Lindsay’s family, friends and also some nurses who cared for Lindsay during her time on the hospice's inpatient unit.

Before she passed away, Lindsay raised thousands for Pendleside Hospice completing a mile long swim. She was the loving wife of Gareth and fabulous mum to Zara and Zach.
