In memory of my mother in law, Julie Hudson

On Monday 28th December 2020, my amazing and brave mother in law sadly lost her battle with pancreatic cancer.

Julie wasn’t just my mother in law, she was more like my mum. She was my go to person for advice, someone I’d share everything with and one of my best friends. We laughed together, cried together, talk almost every day and shared so many memories. I will miss her so much.

She was a one off. A friend to everyone who she met, everyone loved her, but none more than her family. She was a wife, mother, grandma, sister, auntie, cousin and friend.

I wanted to do something in honour of Julie, she was always my biggest fan and supporter in everything I did. So I’ve decided to do the journey from Lands End to John O’Groats (all local and logged online) via walking, running and cycling (a total of 1083.8 miles) and have 13 weeks to do it (this takes me up to what would have been Julie’s birthday)

Julie didn’t want flowers at her funeral, instead wanted donations to be made to Hayward House in Nottingham, so that is who I am raising money for

Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
