As Lady Captain of Helsby Golf Club in 2020, I chose Neuro Therapy Centre (NTC) as my charity for the year.  My father had Motor Neurone Disease and I have friends and relatives with MS, Huntingdon’s Disease etc. I realise how important exercise and socialising is and the centre and its staff provide the facilities and support whereby people with neurological conditions can join in various fitness classes and meet up with friends.

As we, at the golf club, are unable to raise funds in the normal way because of COVID-19 and I have started cycling again during the lock down, I thought I could support NTC by doing a sponsored virtual cycle journey during May and June. I have chosen to ride 325 miles on local roads, this distance being the same as that from Helsby Golf Club to Royal Portrush Golf Club, excluding the ferry journey across the Irish Sea from Cairnryan to Larne. I will be grateful for any sponsorship you can give towards this fundraising activity.
