Exmouth woman's charity hike

An Exmouth woman is gearing up for a charity hiking challenge in memory of her partner who died in April.

Louise Reid will, in the autumn, take part in the 13-mile Dartmoor Challenge to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care, in memory of David Cresswell, who died aged 46.

Louise, and David’s family, will set off from Widecombe-in-the-Moor on Sunday October 10.

She said: “We are looking forward to getting together again to explore areas of Dartmoor that are a bit more off the beaten track.

“We will get the greatest satisfaction from knowing that the money we raise will help Marie Curie Cancer Care to provide the wonderful care for others in Devon that they did for David.”
