The Mary Ashford Memorial Walk featured around 35 family members, many carrying banners of a much missed North Kelsey resident.

The mum of six died last September aged 95, in Clarence House, Brigg, in the care of Macmillan nurses, after 70 years in North Kelsey.

The walk across the Humber Bridge on September 13 raised £1,005.29 for Macmillan Nurses.

It featured Mrs Ashford’s great-grandchildren carrying large photos of Mary Ashford as they crossed the bridge.

Daughter Christine Husthwaite, who lives in Leicester, described the total as “amazing.”
