DOZENS of fundraisers successfully completed a gruelling six-mile feat in aid of the MS Support Centre in Saltney.
Capel Curig, based in Snowdonia, hosted the MS Six Mile Challenge, a gruelling trek which saw several teams carry a wheelchair-using passenger who has multiple sclerosis (MS) or a similar neurological condition across rugged Welsh terrain.
Last year’s challenge raised more than £16,900 for the centre and this year’s event hopes to raise even more.
One of the passengers was 72-year-old Judith Lee, of Ellesmere Port, a regular visitor to the centre based in River Lane.
She said: “This is my first year participating in the challenge and I felt a mixture of trepidation and excitement at the adventure ahead.
“Before my MS, I was a rock climber and fell walker and the opportunity to be back in the midst of what I love to do is too great to miss.”
The centre currently has more than 300 members from Cheshire, Wirral, Merseyside and North Wales and is the only support centre for those with MS and other neurological conditions in the whole of North Wales.
