It was 26 miles of blistered, bruised and bleeding feet…but friends Catrina Bonnington, Jenny Lloyd and Liz Shaw knew every step they took would be making a difference to the lives of patients at St Luke’s Hospice.

Catrina and Jenny are both receptionists at Sheffield’s only hospice, and Liz is a staff nurse in the hospice’s In Patient Centre.

And they all signed up to take part in tough Derbyshire challenge event the White Peak Walk.

Despite walking on one of the hottest days of the year, the friends all managed to cross the finish line – and raise more than £800 for St Luke’s.

“It was hot, painful and very challenging – I had no idea the hills would be so big and so steep,” said Catrina.

“We all had plenty of blisters by the time we finished and I’ve lost some of my toenails but it was definitely worth the effort - and I really want to do it again!”
