Heartbroken family’s fundraising quest By Josh Timlin

THE heartbroken family of a Holmfirth boy who died exactly a year after being diagnosed with a brain tumour have set their sights on raising thousands for a charity. Ten-year-old Rueben Walder died on May 30, having bravely fought his illness – undergoing brain surgery twice, 30 radiotherapy sessions and three subsequent bouts of chemotherapy. Just three years before, his mother Cathy Temple died of breast cancer. His dad, Steve, began a 196mile coast-to-coast walk in his memory alongside partner Elizabeth Robb and sons Otis, nine, and eight-year-old Sidney on August 4 in Cumbria. The family hope to finish

their 18-leg journey at Rueben’s favourite place – Robin Hood’s Bay – on August 21. So far, more than £2,500 has been raised for The Candlelighters Trust, just short of the £3,000 target. A statement from the family said: “Very sadly, exactly a year to the date he was diagnosed, our inspirational boy lost his fight to cancer. “Our loss has left a hole so big, and an absence beyond any words we can find. “Along the way, many friends and family will be joining us to help keep our spirits up and to support us on this worthy cause. “Last year, we raised an incredible amount of £10,693 for Candlelighters, the charity that supports Leeds General

Infirmary, and once again we are supporting such an amazing charity with this challenge. “You have no idea how much support they offer families like ourselves, not just off the wards but by the bedside too. “We have amazing friends that still need their support and without them we’re just not sure how any family would survive. “Rueben had the ability to mould people into better versions of themselves and we have no doubt that once again that is what this walk will do. “The pain and loss will never go away but with everyone by our sides we manage to get through another day.” n Visit justgiving.com and search for Rueben Walder to donate.
