Two brothers have paid tribute to their "precious" mum who died of cancer.

Lesley Bartlett, 67, from Worthing died in 2018 after being diagnosed with the disease.

In her memory, two of her sons Aidan and Gregg Bartlett will be walking over 100 miles across the South East to raise money for Macmillan.

They started on May 10 in Worthing and will end today, on Lesley's birthday, in Chippenham where she has lived for the past 19 years.

Aidan, 39, from Chippenham said: "This isn't just about honouring our mum; she was a mum to four boys, a grandma to seven, and a friend to many.

"We're doing this for them but also for everyone who has faced, or is facing. cancer.

The Argus: Aiden and Gregg Bartlett will be walking over 100 miles

"This is a huge challenge for us, but we can’t begin to imagine what it must be like for people living with cancer. So, we will walk every mile in their honour.”

Gregg, 47, from Lacock, Wiltshire, said: “Our memories of mum are precious, and by supporting Macmillan, we hope to help them continue making a difference in the lives of people living with cancer across the UK.”

So far the brothers have raised over £3,500 for Macmillan through friends, family and corporate sponsors, including Holman.

Aidan said: “We've received incredible support so far. Holman, in particular, has been instrumental in offering significant sponsorship and personal assistance.

"Being part of this broader community effort, we aim to raise even more funds for this outstanding charity."
