Back in May Diana Seller took on a personal challenge in memory of her son Mark and raised a whooping £2286 for the work of Phase! Diana's original hope was to hopefully reach £1000, but has been blown away by peoples support. This money will enable Phase to deliver four support courses for young people struggling with difficulties such as self-harm.

Diana planned to walk 140 miles from Hertfordshire to Herefordshire but the challenge clocked up over 170 miles in total.
Diana said 'It has been a difficult time since losing Mark and I wanted to do something personal as it would have been Mark’s 30th birthday on May 9th and so in his memory I wanted to do a sponsored walk to raise money for 3 different charities all involved with young people; Phase, Unicef and Centre Point.'
