Martyn Wells’ brave battle with cancer and his extraordinary fundraising activities have been picked up by the national press after he completed the Cape Wrath Trail on 9 September. Congratulations to Martyn for, as he modestly describes it, spreading the message of cancer awareness.

Wells, who was diagnosed with malignant melanoma in March 2017 and has stage four cancer, has been raising funds to support the work of Macmillan nurses over the last 18 months, took on the 245 mile Cape Wrath Trail on August 31.
