TWO sisters are undertaking a walking challenge to support the Chester clinic that was there for their father when his life changed forever.

Diabetic Stephen McNulty, aged 57, recently underwent a double leg amputation when he suffered complications with illness and gangrene set in.

The doctor's that treated him say he is making tremendous progress - and now his daughters want to raise money for the team that helped him adapt.

From May 18, Zoe and Charlotte McNulty, aged 22 and 17, will be walking 22 miles over 12 days.

Charlotte said: "Recently my dad's life changed, he had a double leg amputation. Doctors have said he is doing amazing considering the dramatic change.

"The doctors and staff at the hospital helped my dad a lot. My sister and I are thankful for them as they got my dad through the tough change and worked with him to adapt to the changes.

"We would like to raise money for the amputee clinic at the Countess of Chester Hospital for all the equipment and supplies they need."

The family, who live in Ellesmere Port, have already attracted sponsorship from friends, family and people in the town. But they need one final push to reach their minimum target of £300.

Charlotte added: "It's just to say thank you for the work they do. We have set a goal but I am sure they will be very grateful for any money raised."
