Muscular Dystrophy Campaign

CHESTER , U K (Chester Standard) - A FEARLESS fundraiser from Neston is set to take to the mountains of Peru to raise money for charity close to her heart.

Elspeth Church has decided to go that extra mile and sign up to the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign's ultimate challenge - an eleven day trek along the Inca Trail in Peru.

Elspeth from Neston will trek across hilly and difficult terrain next July with the encouragement of her boyfriend who suffers fromthe muscle disease.

She is calling on local people to help her raise funds for the trip. She has already arranged a charity bag pack at a supermarket with friends.

She said: “I can’t wait to go on the Trek, I’ve heard many wonderful stories about Peru and read that doing the Inca Trail is one of life’s must-dos. Doing this for charity makes the opportunity even better and hopefully we can get people involved in fundraising and signing up for the challenge!”

Elspeth has also arranged a deal with the landscape photographers, Nexus Images, at www.nexusimages.co.uk.

Individuals that use the discount code ‘thechurschester’ will get a 10 per cent discount off their prints, and a further 15 per cent from the sale of the prints under this discount code will go to Elspeth’s just giving fund.
