I am fundraising for Pancreatic Cancer in memory of Winifred Laraway

By Matthew Laraway

I am fundraising for Pancreatic Cancer UK.

In honour of our wonderful mum, Wyn Laraway, who passed away from pancreatic cancer on 22nd December 2020, my twin brother and I are aiming to complete the Rota Vicentina, which is a 250 mile walking trail in Portugal.


This will be a fitting tribute, because our mum was an adventurous, free-spirited woman, who held onto her zest for life throughout her treatment and always enjoyed the little things. Especially cream cake and tea!


My brother and I have completed numerous walking trails over the years. From the Three Peaks Challenge, to the Mourne Wall Walk in Northern Ireland, we are ready for the Rota Vicentina and fully understand what a challenge such as this entails.


With your generous donations, we will be able to raise funds for Cancer Research UK, and vital awareness of pancreatic cancer— because if our mum had known about the symptoms sooner— she might still be with us.


Our mum is with us in spirit, and we’ll carry her spirit with us every step of the way.


Thank you.
