Katie explains what inspired her to sign up for the Iceland Northern Lights Trek, which takes place this October.  

Lester, my husband and daddy to our young daughters, died suddenly and tragically in January 2020. Since he died, I strive every day to do the best I can to help our girls flourish, as well as to adjust to living our lives without him.

I saw details of the Iceland trek on Child Bereavement UK’s website and felt an instant pull to what looked like a very exciting challenge.  It looked like a chance to do something for me that would also make my girls proud of their mummy, and make Lester proud of me too. It will be a huge personal challenge for me - emotionally as well as physically. 

I am taking on this challenge in memory of Lester and also to fundraise for Child Bereavement UK. The charity has supported our girls and me since he died, helping me navigate how to tell the girls and supporting us all in our grief journey.
