Pair to take on Great Wall of China

A WRAXALL mother will trek along the Great Wall of China for charity in memory of her father who died just two days after he was diagnosed with cancer.

Shelley Limbrick, aged 41, hopes to raise �3,500 for the Lymphoma Association (LA) following her father’s death in 2009.

Shelley (pictured left) said: “I lost my dad, Tom Flynn, just 48 hours after he was diagnosed and offered a treatment plan.

“LA was an invaluable help to me and my family during a very difficult time and I felt as though I wanted to show my appreciation.”

The mother-of-two starts her 10-day trek today (Thurs) alongside Sue Pickles from Nailsea.
