Richmond youngsters walk Cleveland Way in memory of uncle

Three Richmond siblings have walked the Cleveland Way in memory of their uncle who lost his life to cancer.

Nine-year-old Arthur Miners, sister Molly, 11, and brother Thomas, 12, took on the 109-mile challenge to raise as money and awareness for Blood Cancer UK after their uncle Stuart died of acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in 2017.

The route took in moorland and coastline from Helmsley to Filey Brigg.

In 2022, the siblings walked the Yorkshire Three Peaks raising nearly £2,000 for the charity.

Their fundraising total for their latest walk already stands at more than £1,500.

Dad Ben said: “They kept going even when it got tough, walking over 114 miles in the end.

“It was six long days of walking with only one day of rest. We are so proud of them and their determination and strength and the perseverance they showed.

“They have had plenty of support along the way from friends and family walking small sections with them to keep them going. We feel so lucky to have such kind people supporting us and helping us raise over £1,500 so far.”

Stuart, a staff sergeant with Army Air Corp, was only 35 years old when he died.
