Liberty and Matilda’s Story

Sisters Liberty, 28 and Matilda Henry, 30 are taking on the challenge 100km around the Lake District in a loop, starting and finishing in Kendal, on 11th June, which is also St Barnabas’ Birthday, in memory of their Grandma, Mary Harpham.

“Grandma was a one of a kind Lady; Loving, kind and outgoing! Baking was a passion and a skill she past on to every generation, from lemon to fruit cakes (with plenty of alcohol soaked in!). We all have very fond memories of days with Grandma and Grandad on their farm, cakes in the oven and playing with the dogs (St Bernard’s, Golden Retrievers and Jack Russell’s).

“Grandma’s health deteriorated quite quickly, which drastically impacted on all the family. She was the life and soul right to the end at 92 years of age. We had Hospice at Home nurses visit from St Barnabas caring and supporting grandma towards the end, which meant she could accomplish her final wish – to be at home with us “around her.

We won’t ever forget the relationship the nurses built with Grandma and the family. It was such a difficult time, but they made us all feel supported.”
