WHEN St Michael's Hospice cancelled their Big Spring Walk, sisters Caz Holbrook and Penny Minchin, plus Caz’s ten-year-old son Finn, refused to be beaten.

Before current restrictions were imposed, and while maintaining social distancing throughout, the trio completed the longest, and almost deserted, Big Spring Walk route of 17km on March22.

Raising more than £350 in the process on Mothering Sunday.

Their inspiration was the care given to Caz and Penny’s parents, who sadly both died at St Michael’s, and Finn’s dad who died at the Hospice two years ago.

"St Michael’s is close to all our hearts" said Caz.

"It was a wonderful day and I’m so proud of us all, particularly Finn".
