Bill’s fundraiser for cancer mum
COMEDIAN Bill Bailey has begun a 100-mile cancer fundraising walk along Britain’s “oldest road” in memory of his late mum.
The funny man, 53, is walking The Ridgeway trail in tribute to “real life-force” mum Madryn – a former nurse who died of bowel cancer in 2005.
A troupe of comics, including Jo Brand, Lee Mack and Kevin Eldon, will join him on the six-day trek along the ancient southern England pathway.
Bill said: “Mum was a huge personality. When cancer came calling it was devastating. I miss her all the time.”
