Local musician, Mark Cashin is undertaking a charity walk for Becky Lowder, a young Hunter girl battling cancer.This morning Cashin and a group of supporters set out from Doyalson on a 50km walk to the John Hunter Hospital in an effort to raise funds for Becky’s treatment.
Cashin’s crew are toting red buckets to collect donations along the way. This is what Cashin had to say on his Facebook page last night;
“Ok tomorrow morning at 6 am myself & my cuz Chez Wade-diesel & my muso buddy Kate Keighran-Martin are going to walk from blue haven to the john hunter hospital newcastle we need donations totalling over $20.000 , as no big business has put their hand up & radio & a current affair don’t wanna know about. So Becky Lowder here we come. It’s a 5 hour walk where we will collect donations on the way. At the end of our walk we will deposit the money & take a photo of the deposit slip for all to see. We will constantly update our location so you can donate when we are close to your area. We move as one, we must help her” – Mark Cashin
