This 99-Year-Old Lady From Middleton Has Raised £15K Walking 100 Lengths For The NHS

By Laura Rogan

The kind soul was inspired by Captain Tom Moore.

Following in Captain Tom Moore‘s footsteps (quite literally), 99-year-old Win Page from Middleton started her own sponsored walk for charity, aiming to complete her challenge before her 100th birthday.

Inspired by the now-famous Yorkshire veteran, who raised an incredible £27 million for the NHS, Win Page dedicated her time to walking 100 lengths of her driveway over a ten-day period, officially completing her challenge before her 100th birthday which is today, April 28.

And Win really has really tread some inspiring ground, raising a commendable £15,000 before her deadline. With an initial target of £6,000 total, the kind-hearted lady had already reached her target a whole week before finishing her laps – with all donations being given to the North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust Charity. The NWAS is home to emergency responders, patient transport providers and NHS 111 urgent care and advice-givers in our region, important key workers helping the community during this tough time.


Encouraging donations via her Just Giving page, Win has said the fundraiser was launched with the aim of showing “appreciation for the hard work and dedication of front line NHS workers”, who have been working to combat the COVID-19 outbreak in the UK for over a month now.
