Chris gives back to charity that supported his wife when she contracted a flesh-eating bug

First published in

A man hopes to raise hundreds of pounds for a charity which supported his wife when she contracted a flesh-eating bug.

Becky Felton, of Porters Field, Braintree, contracted the infection Necrotising Fasciitis a year ago and had to have a third of her torso amputated to save her life.

Becky, 31, is now recovering well and husband Chris Felton is working hard to raise money for the Lee Spark NF Foundation, which supported them during Becky’s illness.

Chris will be taking part in the National Three Peak Challenge – climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pyke and Snowdon within 24 hours – to raise money for the Foundation, for which he’s now become an ambassador.

He organised a football tournament at Shrub End Sports Ground, in Colchester, on March 9 to boost the charity's funds and raise more than £250.
