Cycling from London to Paris is a tough call by anyone’s standards. But staff nurse Paula McIntosh and paramedic Debbie Brown pedalled almost 300 miles to raise £2,700 for MS Scotland. They were joined on the journey by Paula’s brother’s girlfriend, Catherine Ronald.
The three women, who trained hard for several months before they set off, were supported along the way by family and friends driving a motorhome, which became their accommodation for the week.
Paula has been a staff nurse for 16 years and has spent the last five years in Ward A12 where she regularly sees patients with various stages of MS. Debbie has a friend with MS and Catherine’s aunt also suffers from the disease.
The money is being shared between the Falkirk branch of MS Scotland and the Campbeltown branch, which is where Catherine is originally from.
