Shelley Godwin raised funds for Pancreatic Cancer UK by completing 12 hours of pilates

LYME Regis resident Shelley Godwin completed 12 hours of pilates last week to raise funds for Pancreatic Cancer UK in memory of her late husband. 

Starting at 7am, Shelley completed 12 hours of pilates at her home in Henry’s Way, following pre-recorded and live classes from her instructor throughout the day and finishing at 7.15pm.

Shelley’s daughter Georgia also joined in from Swansea, where she is studying for her masters degree.

Shelley commented: “It went really well for us yesterday despite the 3pm “wall”, when we both fancied a nap!

“We are now up to £1,685 raised so far for Pancreatic Cancer UK with more donations coming in, so moving towards the target of £3,000.”

The pilates challenge was held in memory of Guy Wilkes, Shelley’s husband of 22 years and father to Georgia, Zoe and William, who died in 2012 of pancreatic cancer just six months after diagnosis.

Pancreatic Cancer UK funds vital world-leading research, provides nurses for those affected and campaigns for change. You can make a donation via Shelley’s fundraising page at
