My daughter Laura MacNeil from Newtonhill has recently completed the Land’s End to John O’Groats cycling challenge for Marie Curie,with a friend Marion Greig. Our family had the help of Marie Curie nurses when Laura’s Granny was ill with cancer and they were a great support. To date she has raised over £1500 through her JustGiving web page: https://www.justgiving.com/Laura-MacNeil which is active until the end of September. The cycle took 14 days and it was a total of 947 miles trying to avoid the busier roads.They had a rest day halfway through, in Chester for a wee break and a massage before they hit the long road north. They were ahead of the really hot weather and never needed their waterproof gear at all – quite a surprise in the British summer!
