Three sisters who were overwhelmed by the care their father received at Queenscourt that they organised their own Star Trekk 10K walk, are the subject of today’s Compassionate Communities blog.
Our Star Trekk night walk was halted by Covid-19. Emma and Becky Horner, sister Michelle Harwood and mum Kate had all registered to take part in the event to raise money in memory of their dad David, who was looked after by Queenscourt.
When they learned the event had been postponed, the sisters decided to continue with their fundraising and hold their own Star Trekk walk, albeit during the day. Sadly, Kate was unable to take part as she is shielding at home.
Emma and Becky walked the original Star Trekk route, but at a safe distance from each other, while Michelle and husband Gareth, walked their own 10K route – raising more than £1,000.
Emma said: “We had all decided to do the Star Trekk walk after we lost our dad. We just wanted to raise as much money as we could for Queenscourt because our experience of the care they provided for dad, made us realise just how amazing the team at Queenscourt are.”
