The wife of a man battling motor neurone disease has completed a cycle challenge to raise money for vital research into the illness.

Catherine Everett, who lives in Stevenage with her husband Scott and daughters Anna and Evie, cycled 56 miles from London to Brighton on Sunday.

She was joined on the London to Brighton Cycle Ride by a group of friends from Hitchin Lacrosse Club and together they have raised more than £2,300 online for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

Scott, 47, was diagnosed with MND in March last year and given up to three years to live.

Catherine said: “We did it! It took all day and challenged each of us at different times, but it was a great atmosphere.

“We had fun though and are really heartened to see donations still coming in.”
