Friends of a much-loved young Halifax woman are preparing to walk more than 100 miles in her memory.
Lisa Saville died in March 2011 after she fell from a moving taxi in City Lane, Wheatley.
Now Heath Fisher, Richard Williams and Joe Tuscevanni along with three others will be taking part in the West Highland Way, walking 109 miles from Milingavie to Fort William in Scotland.
The group will set off on May 25 for the seven day hike. “I’m quite nervous about it because it is the first hike I have ever done,” said Heath who lives in Pellon. “But I’m doing it in memory of Lisa for a charity that has helped her two sisters Chloe and Sophie after Lisa died.”
The group is hoping to raise hundreds of pounds for the Child Victims of Crime.
Heath who works at Holly Bank Trust, Halifax, and as a doorman at Circle Lounge, Halifax, is hoping that people will support them. “I want to raise as much as possible,” said the 24-year-old. “It is obviously a charity that means a lot to me and Debbie and it has helped Lisa’s sisters and it is doing good work.”
Debbie said that the charity didn’t get much funding so it was important that people backed it. “I was really pleased when Heath said he was doing this. He has done a lot to help and it is really important,” she said.
