Peter's Story

Peter Knowles fundraises for Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation in memory of his wife, Wendy who lost her battle with lung cancer in 2009.

“Our Tribute Fund provides a focal point to keep Wendy’s memory alive, not just for myself but for family, friends, neighbours and colleagues to rally around for a good cause so that help can be offered to others who are suffering from lung cancer. It has provided the hub of my fund-raising activity; walking the Wainwright peaks in the Lake District with blogs and photos to chart my progress and keeping in touch with all these good people. It keeps me fit, gives me a purpose and an opportunity to meet, chat and walk with friends old and new. In short, it’s a life-enhancer for me and a potential life-saver for others and it makes me feel good. I wouldn’t have done this without the Tribute Fund – long may it continue."
