An Amble-based travel expert, who specialises in making travel accessible and inclusive to everyone, is telling her husband to get on his bike to support a national MS charity.
Lizzie Adamson-Brown has pledged to raise much-needed funds for Morpeth-based charity, MS Research and Relief Fund (MSRRF), and she’s putting her travel planning and organisational skills to good use by sending her husband Colin on a gruelling cross-country cycle ride.
In May, Colin will be cycling the Coast to Coast route from Cumbria to Tynemouth and will cover more than 130 miles in three days. He hopes to raise funds for the charity and will be joined on the ride by other volunteers.
Lizzie runs her own travel business as part of independent travel company Travel Counsellors and arranges travel for people with health conditions or disabilities.
MSRRF helps people with MS all over the UK by giving grants for aids and adaptions, equipment and respite care. For those who are within travelling distance of Morpeth, the facilities include exercise classes and state-of-the-art gym equipment.
Lizzie said: “MSRRF is making a big difference to people with MS and we wanted to do something to help.” To support Colin, visit www.justgiving.com/Colinbongo Brown
