Carolyn Tomlinson, supply chain manager at Chadwicks, has taken part in the Macmillan Peak District Mighty walking challenge in memory of a former colleague.  

Carolyn and her husband, Dave, completed the 18 mile trek across the Peak District countryside in five hours in memory of Julie Kiely, who sadly passed away earlier this year. 

Thanks to the generosity of colleagues, friends and family, Carolyn raised almost £600 for Macmillan cancer support.

Carolyn says: “It is a charity very close to our hearts. Our colleague and friend Julie was helped enormously by the Macmillan team during her illness and this was a way of saying thank you.

“The event itself was extremely well organised and the Macmillan staff and volunteers offering their support on the day were fantastic.  I am very grateful to everyone for their kindness and generosity.”
