Lily’s superhero effort for Weldmar Hospicecare
Have you spotted Wonder Women in the Burton Bradstock area?
Nine year old Lily Tancock, from Burton Bradstock, can certainly be described as a superhero supporter of Weldmar Hospicecare.
Previously, she’s competed in our Bubble Rush and Frosty 5k events, she organised her own coffee morning that raised more than £850, and she’s put together and delivered gift packs for patients at Christmas.
Lily, together with mum Kerry and dad Dom, were due to take part in our new fundraising event, KAPOW!, next month, but that’s had to be cancelled due to Covid-19.
KAPOW! encouraged participants to dress up as superheroes and tackle a number of inflatable obstacles around Lodmoor Country Park in Weymouth, and so Lily has decided to take on her own superhero challenge instead – dressing up as Wonder Woman and walking a mile a day for fifteen days – the distance from her home to our hospice!
She’s doing it each day as her daily exercise.
Lily says, “The idea came from a combination of Kapow being cancelled and me having an idea of wanting to walk to Weldmar from our home. So I have worn my superhero outfit and will walk the 15 miles distance over 15 days.
I wanted to help as I know that you need lots of help at the moment as your shops are closed and lots of your events are cancelled. It has been fun getting out of the house and cheering people up in my costume. I want to raise as much money for you as I can”
Go Lily Tancock! Thank you to the Tancock family for their continued support.
