She organised the gruelling event at the Brooklands Club, Maltby, because her niece, Molly, suffers with Cystic Fibrosis, the UK’s most common, life-threatening inherited disease.

Lisa, who was helped by fellow instructors Gaynor Ibbs and Sarah Kemp, said: ‘It was a lot of hard work in the run up to the event and on the day too, but we had some fantastic support and I’m so pleased we managed to raise such a great amount once again’.

All the money raised will help fund research into treating and curing Cystic Fibrosis. It will also help provide support, advice and appropriate clinical care to the 8,000 babies, children and young adults with Cystic Fibrosis in the UK.
