A South Yorkshire mum whose son died from cystic fibrosis aged just 26 is striding into the Peak District to raise cash in his memory.

Andrea Blackett is taking part in the Walk for Wards around the Longshaw Estate in aid of the Sheffield Hospitals Charity, which supports the city’s adult cystic fibrosis centre at the Northern General Hospital, where her son Michael was treated.

The 53-year-old will be completing the 10 kilometre route alongside her two-year-old grandson Corey-George – Michael’s son – as well as other family, friends and staff from the centre.
