Christopher Edwards, local musician, has completed a yearlong challenge Budapest or Bust to raise funds to support the care provided by Willen Hospice. Chris cycled 1,200 miles in memory of his late mother, Mairi Elizabeth-Rose Edwards who was cared for by Willen Hospice.

Chris embarked on the final stage of his yearlong Budapest or Bust challenge on Monday 10th April and arrived back safely completing his epic challenge on Thursday 27th April performing a gig at Heroes Square Budapest. Chris’s incredible journey raised over £3000 to support the care provided by Willen Hospice.

To continue to support patients and their loved ones, Willen Hospice needs to raise £3.6 million every year – that works out at around £7 per minute.

Dawn Clark, Fundraising Manager at Willen Hospice said “Chris’s journey has been incredible right from the beginning. He has been an amazing supporter of the Hospice and we are very proud that he completed his amazing challenge. Big thank you and respect to Chris for his fantastic dedication, commitment and monies raised.”
