Malvern Council's Nicky to undertake 100km Pembrokeshire trek for breast cancer charity CoppaFeel

Malvern Editorial 15th Apr, 2022   0

MALVERN Hills District Council employee Nicky Stevens will embark on a 100km five-day trek on the Pembrokeshire coastline to raise money for national breast cancer charity CoppaFeel.

Nicky undertake the task between June 11 and 17 in aid of the charity, which is the first in the UK to solely raise awareness among young people.

The journey will be guided by podcaster, author and I’m a Celebrity winner Giovanna Fletcher.

She was one of 100 ladies to be selected to join CoppaFeel’s mission from over 1,000 applicants.

In order to take on the challenge, Nicky needs to raise £2,250 for CoppaFeel.

Nicky, who is community development officer at the district council, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017, resulting in a year of chemotherapy and hospital visits.

She said her experience having cancer had given her a new perspective on life.

“After my entire life was turned upside-down, I knew I needed to come out the other end stronger for myself and for my daughters.

“It has been five years since my cancer journey and I want to acknowledge this and raise funds for a very special charity to me.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and I am really looking forward to trekking with a team of amazing women.”

Portfolio Holder for Housing and Health at Malvern Hills District Council, Coun Natalie McVey, added: “We are all really proud of Nicky and all that she has achieved so far in her journey.

“We know she is going to have an amazing experience on the trek for such a worthy cause, and we wish her all the very best of luck.”
