    Just posted today. No indication of when the cremation took place. I thought it might have been announced in advance but maybe they wanted to ensure privacy. Does this mean the thread will be closed? RIP Esther and thoughts with Dan and family.

    Durham hiker Esther Dingley's legacy to cure 300 people of blindness

    HUNDREDS of blind people will have life-changing treatment thanks to money raised in memory of hiker Esther Dingley, who died while walking in the Pyrenees ten months ago.

    The 37-year-old, who lived in Durham before she and partner Dan Colegate went travelling in 2014, went missing during a solo trek in November.

    Her remains were found last month following extensive searches by specialist teams in France and Spain.

    Her loved ones said her ashes have now been scattered “among the places that she loved the most” and revealed that enough money had been raised in her memory to give up to 300 blind people their sight back.


    The Northern Echo obviously read Dan's statement on FB, but still, what a lovely way to present this news, and what a great legacy.
