Keighley Cougars take over barge-pull
9:30am Friday 9th May 2014 in News
A charity barge pull is taking place in memory of a woman who died of lung cancer.
Nurse Emma Fisher and her husband Gavin, of Thackley, Bradford, have joined eight friends to haul the barge along the canal towpath from Liverpool to Leeds in five days to raise £20,000 for the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.
The event is in memory of Julie Robinson, 48, of Leeds, who defied cancer by surviving for 21 months after doctors gave her only eight weeks to live when she was diagnosed.
