Fundraising walk for Lizzy Adams from Conyer from Teynham to Rainham helps appeal

By Poppy Jeffery

Almost 30 people turned out to walk from Teynham to Rainham to help raise money for a 13-year-old with inoperable brain cancer.

The group were raising money for Lizzy Adams to allow the Conyer teenager to receive experimental treatment which is not available on the NHS.

Walking from The Swan in London Road to Rainham Railway Station, the nine-mile route was completed in four hours, despite the rain.

Hayley Swinyard, one of the fundraising team, said: “It went great and everybody enjoyed it.

“Even though it did rain, everybody carried on and finished.”

The total raised has not yet been calculated but Lizzy’s family must raise £120,000 to afford the treatment.
