Cowbit adventurer Shelley Cooper (37) has made her grandmother at a Holbeach nursing home proud by walking the length of one of the world’s greatest landmarks.
Shelley, who works for Holbeach horticultural firm Intergreen UK, went on a ten-day trek of the Great Wall of China in aid of Holbeach Hospital Nursing Home where her grandmother Dorothy Ayre has been a resident since 2008. About £4,500 was raised through sponsorship of Shelley’s trek by family and friends and the money was presented to delighted residents and hospital staff on Friday. Shelley said: “It was a fantastic trip and very interesting, although it was quite hard work at times. “There were 25 of us in the group that did it and the highlight for me was the camaraderie among us to get each other through the trek.”
