Local business leader goes over and above to raise awareness for Cancer Research UK

Visha Keshwala, Director of Caremark Hinckley, Bosworth, Blaby & Leicester City, a leading home care provider, is set to embark on a formidable journey up Britain’s highest peak, Ben Nevis, next month.

Climbing on Saturday 29th June, this expedition is not just a test of endurance for Visha but a powerful and personal initiative to raise funds and awareness for Cancer Research UK, spotlighting the determined spirit of those battling cancer.

In her role at Caremark, Visha sees daily the profound effects cancer has on individuals and families. Her leadership in providing compassionate and personalised care helps many lead independent, dignified lives despite their health challenges. The climb symbolises a broader commitment by Visha and her Caremark team to support not only the physical health but also the emotional and mental wellbeing of their customers.

Commenting on her challenge, Visha said:

“Every day at Caremark, we witness the strength of those living with cancer and the difference that dedicated support and care can make. It inspires us to push beyond limits, which is what I aim to do by climbing Ben Nevis.

“Cancer is one of those diseases that everyone is touched by at some point in their lives, whether directly or through loved ones. For me, taking on this climb is a testament to the resilience seen in our customers, their families, and the broader community. By supporting me in this challenge, you’ll be helping Cancer Research advance crucial research that one day might eliminate the scourges of cancer.”

Supporters are encouraged to support Visha’s efforts by sponsoring her climb through her fundraising page at https://fundraise.cancerresearchuk.org/page/vishas-giving-page. All proceeds will directly benefit Cancer Research UK, fuelling their vital work in cancer research and the hope of making significant advances in prevention, treatment, and care.
