Jo and Friends Sussex Saunter – 19th June 2020

Jo is a local Sussex writer and Business Ambassador for the Sussex Cancer Fund. Jo and 5 friends are going to ‘Step it Up For Cancer’ and take part in our #SussexSaunter campaign with a 10-mile walk from Alfriston to Cuckmere Haven on the 19th June.

Jo is more used to running but has organised the sponsored walk to say thanks to the Sussex Cancer Centre where she was treated in recent years. Actually, under her pen name Josie Lloyd, Jo has documented how running played a big part in her recovery from Cancer in her latest book “The Cancer Ladies’ Running Club” (due to be published in May 2021). The magazine Good Housekeeping has just featured her story in their latest issue, where she talks about her journey which includes meeting some very special ladies and celebrating their friendship and support through running together (you can read it here).

However, this week they are going to slow down the pace a little and take in some of the beautiful Sussex countryside and raise some money for the Sussex Cancer Fund.
